40% of the electorate in the US (as of 2018) are independent (Not Republican, nor Democrat), proportionately speaking, and of true representation, the US House ought to be near the same.

Some points to mention :
* I compiled this list using : https://ballotpedia.org/United_States_House_of_Representatives_elections,_2018
* I did leave some off because they didn't have a website (very few, perhaps 10 - 20 or so).
* There are a variety of candidates who are independent, Green, Libertarian and some other parties within the list.
* I didn't label each one via district & party (I'll update those factors later), the ones that are - are because the info was easy to find - this is a substantial list; however, I do have the websites plus the state they are running in (keep in mind you can donate & support them even if they are not in your district nor state and since they are running for a federal position it is still relevant to do so).
* I have noticed Ballotpedia has made mistakes in the past (very seldom) however, it has been very dependable and efficient overall.
* If you are a candidate who fits the description above and aren't listed below, contact me and I will verify it and add you to the list.
* This list was created July 29, 2018 - it's possible a candidate might drop out or endorse another etc.
* If you notice any discrepancies please contact me and I will check it out and correct if verified.

Editorial :

Competition should get us closer to true representation. A lack of competition distorts the truth, so does unfair competition.

Even if you’re a true blood Democrat or Republican, consider a time tested way to make parties behave better; via some competition.

Out of the almost 70 candidates listed above running for the US House (w/ 435 members) perhaps 10 could garner enough consensus & support for voters to decide to take the risk and open the possibilities & potential for true representation in 2018 and the future. After all this is the US House, the easiest place for that kind of risk to occur, it’s one reason the elections are held every 2 years for that position.

Being that these candidates are the only ones who are not Republicans nor Democrats on the ballot, in their districts, and that these candidates are running for the US House — not Presidency nor Senate — they should be less divisive.
