Commonwealth Purpose


KYIVA GOAL: Build the bottom-up Internet structure needed for the nonpartisan populist ballot access movement to create open Final Five Primary Elections and RCV (Ranked Choice Voting) General Elections in every state.1 All eligible voters will vote by mail in every state. Equal political speech under the law. We are the 99.999%. Occupy Elections. Everybody Vote! Occupy KY Legislative and Executive Offices. Occupy the U.S. Congress. Occupy the White House.

The ultimate IVA purpose is to give all citizens equal political speech under federal election law and under KY election law. IVA participants will accomplish ballot access for and Election Day support of nonpartisan candidates and issues. The IVA will publish ballot access petitions. Published petitions, available for download, will be petitions for nonpartisan and minor party candidates, minor political parties, and pro-reform referendum issues. Each IVA certified petition circulator will choose which ballot access petitions to circulate. Successful petition efforts will give voters more ballot choices to initiate governance from the bottom up. Active citizenship, participation, will lead to government of, by, and for natural persons at the local, state, and national levels.


Nonpartisan Leadership:

The KYIVA will support establishment of a cooperative KYIVA populist nonpartisan political party with an acting Central Committee composed of one man and one woman from each Kentucky county acting as a "political group" in accordance with Kentucky law. IVA web pages will be established in every county and local electoral area in Kentucky to provide communications and ballot access leadership for every IVA participant. Complete and submit the KYIVA pdf-Participation Form to join the leadership team in Kentucky.

The KYIVA will consistently seek populist nonpartisan and minor party cooperative candidates who seek reasonable solutions for all political issues. The only requirement of all IVA participants and IVA candidates for public office is support for our democratic republic. Liberty, justice, and a more democratic republic are constant IVA goals.

Success depends upon participation by large numbers of populist nonpartisans, who are a super majority, as IVA web page managers and as IVA certified  petition circulators. The average IVA participant would need to donate ten to twenty hours of public service time per year to transform our political system. Liberty and justice for all in a more democratic republic is the overall IVA goal.

Continuous ballot access as a cooperative political party will be obtained for the IVA in Kentucky when supported by growth in the number of IVA participants. Continuous IVA ballot access will be maintained either by petition or by obtaining the necessary percentage of votes in Presidential and Gubernatorial elections as provided by KY law.


Continuous KY ballot access for all minor parties will be a required concurrent IVA petition goal. The KYIVA will work to place candidates for local, State and national offices (President, Vice President, U.S. Senator, and U.S. Representative to Congress) from all minor parties on all KY ballots. Each IVA participant, individual voter or minor party, will then decide which Presidential pair, and other candidates, to vote for or endorse, as the populist candidate most likely to win each public office. Each populist nonpartisan and minor party public office holder will help to eliminate the pointless bipartisan power struggle that now prevents open clean elections at all levels.

(Our Choice) (Top of Page)

All IVA cooperative candidates must support basic electoral and political reforms to return control of the political process to the people of Kentucky.

Candidates: Each IVA cooperative candidate, usually one per public office, could be a populist nonpartisan candidate with a well-defined individual platform on issues. If not, an IVA cooperative candidate can choose to run his/her campaign on the well-defined platform of one or more of the minor parties, such as Green, Independence, Libertarian, Natural Law, Reform, or We the People parties in alphabetical order.

Populist nonpartisans and minor parties using IVA ballot access will agree to choose one cooperative candidate from all possible candidates to stand for any specific public office, especially on the state and local levels. Other promising cooperative candidates will choose to run for another office where an IVA cooperative candidate is needed to provide an alternative to the monopoly bipartisan two-party system. All endorsed candidates will be selected to provide the best-qualified candidate for every public office in every election.

In the event the IVA cooperative populist nonpartisan political party has actual ballot access and can field a full set of candidates for public office, and there is still more than one IVA candidate standing for the office(s), the IVA will participate in primary elections as provided by KY law to elect one candidate from two or more IVA candidates to stand for each public office in the November general elections.

One central IVA cooperative guiding principle is to provide opposition and alternatives to the monopoly bipartisan two-party system in order to win local, state and national level public office with nonpartisan and minor party candidates who will provide government of, by, and for natural perspons.


Briefly, the KYIVA can build a populist nonpartisan political structure to maintain open ballot access for all public offices in KY with the least effort possible. With ballot access problems solved the populist nonpartisan ballot access movement can dedicate more time and effort toward the election of populist nonpartisan and minor party candidates who will represent every person in the populist Voter Majority. IVA populist candidates elected to public office will govern for the common good of all citizens. (Top of Page) (Your Voice) (Open Access)

(Our Choice)

The nonpartisan ballot access movement can become strong enough to overcome the bipartisan (two-party) left/right stranglehold on our political process. Divided, the nonpartisan voter majority will continue to be factional and marginal. Together, the populist nonpartisan majority can move toward a more democratic republic of, by, and for all the people of the United States. Support your Local IVA. (Your Voice)


KYIVA Cooperative Party Ballot Access Numbers: Ten valid signatures from 5,000 petition circulators (50,000 valid signatures) are more than the number of valid signatures needed on minor party ballot access petitions in KY. Twenty times that number of petition circulators, 100,000, would lower the number of valid signatures needed per petition circulator to only one or two signatures. Signatures from a spouse and a neighbor can transform our world. Once we have 100,000 IVA certified motivated petition circulators, we can easily reform our KY political system. With as few as five thousand well-motivated petition circulators across the Commonwealth of Kentucky we can accomplish ballot access miracles.

Continuous Cooperative Ballot Access: Twenty signatures every two years from 5,000+ KYIVA petition circulators (100,000+ signatures) from friends, neighbors, and family will certify KYIVA ballot access for all future elections. Every legislative candidate using KYIVA ballot access will need just 25 valid signatures, not 1000s, for ballot access. Statewide candidates will need just 1000, not 5000 valid signatures. With ballot access assured, populist nonpartisan candidates can successfully compete with the bipartisan monopoly.

Each state requires different numbers. (Top of Page) (Your Voice)

Ballot access petitions will be available on IVA web pages and other web pages for use by populist nonpartisan  citizens. Freedom is participation in power.

Be a proactive petition circulator and Election Day participant.

Be a proactive citizen in your voting precinct.

A Little Effort A Lot of Liberty

Welcome to the populist nonpartisan ballot access movement.

Legislation: Develop and promote model legislation for ballot access and election laws for use in KY and throughout the fifty states. Model legislation must honor the equal protection provisions of the KY and the U.S. Constitutions in both the letter and the spirit of the law.

IVA Goal

















Our Choice













Occupy Open Clean Elections: The IVA is proposed to be a populist "nonpartisan" political structure organized on the computer, tablet and smart phone desktops of IVA participants to give our people a strong voice in public elections and in our governments. We will end the monopoly power of the corrupt bipartisan two-party system.

The only IVA headquarters are located on local computer, tablet and smart phone desktops of IVA participants on the political precinct level in all fifty states. Millions of desktops. We are the 99.999%. Occupy elections - Everyody Vote!

The IVA can be an Internet opportunity for a new beginning in political organization for our republic and for other people throughout the world. For our nation, an emphatic move away from a corruptible "bipartisan two-party political system" toward a "populist nonpartisan political system" with many more nonpartisan and minor party populist candidate choices to give voters a reason to vote.

Emphasis will no longer be on ideology, power and control, but on issues and workable solutions to our republic's problems. The IVA emphasis will be on liberty and justice for all in a more democratic republic. rls
