The Independent Voter Network (IVN) is a new kind of news network. An online news platform for communication between independent-minded voters, public officials, civic leaders, and journalists. The Independent Voter Network is dedicated to providing political news, analysis, and opinion in an effort to elevate the common conversation.

Our Readership

What you get with IVN is ad placement on a trusted brand, and a readership of swing voters not found anywhere else. In the week leading up to the 2012 election, there were over 1 million visitors to IVN each day.

35% of IVN’s online traffic comes from regular readers. This means that the readers of IVN trust our content and come back for more. And these readers span the political spectrum. What makes IVN’s readers unique is that they do not fit the typical Republican v. Democrat mold. They are open to ideas, receptive to new messages, but skeptical of traditional political media and politicians. They are the people that your friends turn to when they want an honest opinion about who to vote for or who to believe.
