New York Independence Party Affiliates with the Alliance Party

Ballot Access News

The New York Independence Party very recently became the New York state affiliate of the Alliance Party.

If it weren’t for the New York law that passed in April 2020, making it far more difficult for parties to remain ballot-qualified, the Independence Party would now be ballot-qualified, and therefore the Alliance Party would now be ballot-qualified in New York. But under the new law, the Independence Party is not ballot-qualified. It is possible that the new New York law will be declared unconstitutional in federal court in the coming months.

The Alliance Party is now ballot-qualified in Connecticut, Florida, Mississippi, and South Carolina, and it will be ballot-qualified in Delaware (under the name American Delta) if it increases its registration by about 100 more members.
