How to bypass RequiredFieldValidator when redirecting to another page

I am developing a web site in ASP.NET with VB.NET on MS Visual Web Developer.  I have a web form with a number of required fields, each using asp:RequiredFieldValidator.  I have a button that redirects the customer to another page ( Response.Redirect("product_list.aspx?id=" & categoryID) in code behind ) to con.  But when the customer clicks the button, each of the RequiredFieldValidator 's error messages fire.  Is there a way to got to the redirect page without these firing?
