Welcome to the Non-Partisan Delaware Website!

Non-Partisan Delaware is a ballot qualified political organization in Delaware. We are unique from many political organizations in that we do not have a fixed platform or policy goal. Our immediate short term goals are determined each election cycle by the NPD Governing Board through the development of an internal "Strategic Plan" and we focus on achieving those goals through public information activities, lobbying policymakers in coordination with our coalition partners, and supporting candidates for public office.

Our Strategic Plan for the 2023-2024 Election Cycle includes the following priorities:

  • Cannabis Legalization

    NPD is extremely proud that in our first year of operations, we were able to assist the Delaware Cannabis Advocacy Network and the Delaware Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws to pass HB1 and HB2, legalizing personal use quantities of cannabis and creating a legal retail market.

  • Ranked Choice Voting

    NPD is coordinating with Rank the Vote Delaware to promote the study and implementation of ranked choice voting in Delaware elections.

  • Abortion, Gender & Sexual Minority, and Gun Rights

    While these issues are rarely considered together and often find little common ground between the traditional "right" and "left", NPD views all of these issues through the perspective of individual privacy and the rights of individuals to live as they choose.

  • Education, Land Use, Environment, Broadband, Criminal Justice, Other

    This catch-all refers to areas we would like to work on as opportunities arise, but have not put together a more focused and cohesive approach.

On these issues and any others, Non-Partisan Delaware hopes to provide a perspective outside the common left-vs-right paradigm based on thoughtful and thorough analysis, open but skeptical towards new information, and unconstrained by ideological dogma.

Our Board members, after years of activism, have developed a healthy skepticism of coercive, majority-imposed policies over those based on mutual consent and individual dignity. However we recognize the need for pragmatism as we seek to find ways a new and small organization on the Delaware political scene can make a positive difference!

You and Your Defense

Following the horrific massacre in Uvalde, Texas, calls for tightened gun control restrictions arose as predictably from some corners as the counter-argument that was tossed back that additional mental health assets and armed teachers and tougher law enforcement were the policies that would create a safer society. With the appalling frequency of these tragic events comes a sad familiarity with the resulting “debate”. By “debate”, of course, we refer to a habit on both sides of designating their opponents as “gun nuts” or “gun grabbers”, “red necks” or “socialists”, that has only intensified in the 23 years since Columbine, the decade since Sandy Hook, and the weeks since Uvalde, Texas. The usual suspects on both sides arrive on cue with the same arguments.

Yesterday saw politicians at protests across the state stridently attacking their opponents for wanting to take away individual rights. For taking an un-American step down a dark road to tyranny.

Was it a gun rights rally or an abortion rights march?

The parallels in the rhetoric would be ironically amusing were they not so troubling. Have Americans reached a point at which they are only capable of screaming at each other through the most simplistic and venal memes and sound bites you can imagine? Are we so incapable of wrapping our minds around ideas we disagree with that anyone espousing it can only be lying, evil, and intent on our destruction?

Reclaim Your Privacy

Yesterday we wrote about the dangerous approach of a rogue Supreme Court not only dismissing any constitutional right to privacy when it struck down Roe v Wade, but also threatening (in Justice Clarence Thomas’s words) to go back and “correct” Obergefell, Griswold, etc.

This Court not only does not respect precedent, but has an activist intent to roll back the last fifty years of expanded rights for women, people of color, LGBTQ+ Americans, and anybody who has sex outside the missionary position.

What can ordinary Americans do in the face of an activist, rogue Supreme Court with the power to literally recast our hard-won civil rights when an old man taps “Enter” on his keyboard?

A lot, actually.

Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade

This is not the platform upon which we had hoped to launch our party, but sometimes the best laid plans are disrupted by circumstance. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court, which overturned Roe v Wade, has already curtailed the rights of women in 13 states, according to the Washington Post. These states have “trigger laws” already in place that come into force immediately or within 30 days of Roe being overturned, and it is expected that eventually severe restrictions and outright bans on abortion will exist in half the states of the nation.
