Better for America (BFA) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization that was dedicated to getting nationwide ballot access for an independent candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election.[1] The effort was inspired by the unpopularity of the two major party nominees, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and was seen as part of the Stop Trump movement.[2]

The organization's initial strategy was to gain ballot access in states that do not require a candidate to be named, and then name its candidate after the major party conventions.[1] The candidate was planned to be named by an advisory board rather than through traditional primary elections, or through a crowdsourcing effort like the failed Americans Elect effort in the 2012 election.[3] On August 8, 2016, it was reported that Evan McMullin, an anti-Trump Republican and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) official, would be Better for America's nominee.[4][5][6] McMullin was officially nominated on August 24.[7]

In July, the organization filed petitions in two states, New Mexico[1] and Arkansas.[8] By early August, Arkansas had accepted the petition,[9] while New Mexico had rejected the petition because it did not have enough valid signatures,[6] although the New Mexico decision was challenged in court.[10] On August 22, the organization announced that it was ceasing further ballot access efforts.[11] On September 8, the New Mexico Secretary of State reversed his decision and placed Better For America on the ballot.[12]

Notable people involved in the organization include conservative donor John Kingston III and former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman.[3] Lawrence Lessig and Randy Barnett expressed their support for the organization in a Time opinion piece.[13]
