Thank you for your  interest in learning more about the Independent Party of Oregon. IPO was formed because of the frustration at how politics is practiced in Oregon and America. It seems as though the Democrats and Republicans spend too time fighting each other (and us) over political power, and have become too beholden to the monied interests that fund their campaigns.

While many voters complained that there was little they could do about it.  We have created the IPO to be a place where people who believe in collaboration and common sense can work together to serve our shared interests rather than engaging in the partisan squabble.

A momumental landmark was reached in February, 2015, when the Oregon Secretary of State recognized the Independent Party of Oregon as Oregon’s third major party. The IPO party, and its candidates now have the same legal rights as Democrats and Republicans. Since that announcement, there has been a tsunami of support from voters who we believe have been watching our progress from afar and now accept the IPO as a legitimate alternative to the Democratic/Republican monopoly.

We have a plan for moving forward and effectively advocate for the rights of all Oregonians.  Below you can learn a bit more about the Party, our plan and how you can make a difference.

If you are ready to make a difference, join us. Either as a member, or an active supporter who wants to make a difference.



If you’re interested in getting on an email or mailing list, joining the Party, meeting other party members, or volunteering or even running for public office as an IPO candidate, we encourage you to contact us at info@indparty.com.
