DescriptionHow Americans Elect works.
In summer 2012, Americans Elect will hold a secure convention online in which any registered voter of any party can become a Delegate and help pick a competitive ticket for President and Vice President, unaffiliated with any political party. Until then, we are working to secure ballot access for this ticket in all 50 states. Any person who meets the constitutional qualifications to be President may seek the Americans Elect nomination. More details will come soon.

What Americans Elect isn't.

We are not a traditional third party or political party of any sort. We have no candidates, issues, or ideology of our own. We do not promote or oppose any candidate for office. We do not seek to influence which candidate any voter chooses in 2012. We have no ties to any political party or other group or movement—left, right, or center. None of our funding comes from corporate, labor, special interest, foreign, or lobbyist sources.

What Americans Elect is.

What we are is a nonpartisan nonprofit founded by Americans from all sides of politics who are worried that our nation’s deep political divisions keep big problems from being solved. Their support has made Americans Elect possible, but it is the Delegates—you, your family members, your friends, and millions of other caring Democratic, Republican, and independent voters—who will make it work.
Six Things to Know about Americans Elect.

Americans Elect is a better way to choose a President
Americans Elect will hold a secure vote in the first-ever online presidential nominating convention
Every registered voter—Democrats, Republicans and independents—may be a Delegate, and millions of Americans Elect Delegates will vote for a ticket that bridges the vital center of our national politics
Americans Elect will have 50-state ballot access
Americans Elect will revitalize and modernize how America does democracy
The Delegates—and the rest of the American people—are the true boss of Americans Elect

In the end, you will select the Americans Elect ticket that will bridge the vital center of our politics and get America back on track. Americans Elect is simply the platform—a nonpartisan group of Americans who have come together to create a new system of choosing our candidates for President.
