Christina Tobin is a thought leader in the electoral reform and voters’ rights movements. She is the founder and chair of both the non-profit Free & Equal Elections Foundation and the petitioning company Free & Equal, Inc.
Free & Equal Elections Foundation leads national, state, and local efforts to transform the electoral system by hosting U.S. Presidential debates; producing Electoral Reform Symposiums and Free & Equal TV; building coalitions; organizing United We Stand events uniting the younger generations with musicians, artists, and thought leaders; and creating a blockchain election assistant app to bring transparency to the electoral system, inspire individuals to run for office, and empower voters with information on all their candidate choices.
Tobin started her career in 1998 as a non-partisan ballot access coordinator. An expert in defending signatures and coordinating petition drives, Tobin helped gather and defend millions of signatures for the Constitution Party, Democratic Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party, Republican Party, and independents. In 2008, Tobin served as Ralph Nader’s national ballot access coordinator for his independent Presidential run. She helped coordinate more than 500,000 signatures to put Nader on the District of Columbia ballot and 45 state presidential ballots, more than any other third party or independent candidate.
Throughout her life, Tobin has brought people of different backgrounds together, as her life’s mission is to spread unity, peace, and opportunity by reforming the electoral process. She earned a B.A. from Saint Mary’s University in Winona, Minnesota where she served as varsity tennis captain and volunteered for Habitat for Humanity.
