Bringing unfiltered, unbiased, and honest political news to you, so you can Speak For Yourself!
Introduction
Created in 2006, Independent Voter Network (IVN) is an online news platform dedicated to providing voters and candidates with unfiltered, non-partisan political analysis and information. In response to the increasingly divided political climate in America, IVN encourages independent-minded voters, public officials, civic leaders, and journalists to speak for themselves. We believe in the power of compromise over ideology and the importance of solutions over politics. As a non-profit organization, our goal is not to sell a product, but rather to provide independent information, present various viewpoints, and encourage thoughtful discussion.
