CLEVELAND -- There are more Independent voters than members of either political party nationwide.

According to a recent Gallup poll, 40 percent of voters say they are Independents. In Cuyahoga County, the number is 49 percent.

Yet in many states, Independent voters feel like second-class citizens.

They pay for the cost of elections, but cannot vote in partisan primaries. Ohio is one of those states.

A new group, a state chapter of a nationwide group, is being launched in Ohio.

You can get more information about Independent Ohio by connecting at or go to the national website below. 

Tom Beres discusses the role of Independent voters and their rights with group members Cynthia Carpathios, Franz Bauer and Channel 3 Political Analysts Mary Anne Sharkey and Dennis Eckart on this edition of Between the Lines.
