This list of political parties in the United States contains past and present political parties in the United States. Political parties are not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution; which defines a nonpartisan system in which votes are cast for individuals, not parties. Political parties nontheless exist due to political freedom and freedom of association. Political parties are private organizations that manage themselves, organize primary elections for local, state, and federal offices, define common policy initiatives, and run campaign contribution drives for the benefit of their party candidates. No laws limit the number of political parties that may operate, so theoretically, it can operate as a simple multi-party system. However, since the Civil War (1864), the country has had a de facto two-party system, with occasional inlets made by so-called "third parties". This is largely a consequence of the winner-takes-all election system and restrictive ballot access laws imposed on the other political parties, as well as the leadership rules in Congress. There are and have been many political parties other than the two dominant ones (the Republican Party and the Democratic Party), but most are generally considered to be of only limited and temporary political significance.

Categorizing U.S. political parties

The political parties are in four categories below, "Current largest parties", "Other current national parties that have endorsed candidates", "Current regional parties that have endorsed candidates" and "Political parties in U.S. history".


An alternate means for categorizing U.S. political parties, historically and currently, is to apply the Federal Election Commission's definition of "national committees" retroactively in time to the beginning of the U.S. To see such a list, see Richard Winger's article in the Election Law Journal, April 2006 (Vol. 5 no. 2), which can be read on-line. Within that article, the list of parties is in Appendix A.


Year is when founded. Order of current parties is alphabetical.
