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 independentohio@gmail.com 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.
