LEARN HOW DEMOCRACY REFORMS BECOME LAW IN INDIANA
Twenty-four states, including Indiana, do not feature a process for citizen-led ballot initiatives. This means that a state legislator must sponsor a bill in order for it to be voted on to become law. This requires you to be in relationship with your state legislatures. Some tactics used in these states to pressure on them to act are community powered lobbying, marching, and nonviolent civil disobedience. LEARN MORE!

The right to vote and have our voices heard is fundamental to our democracy. Our democracy is stronger when every eligible American participates, confident that when they cast a vote that it will be counted as cast. Make sure you are registered to vote and know where your polling place is located!

Indiana lawmakers are advancing legislation that they say would further ensure confidence in Indiana’s elections amid a national focus on election security.But voting rights groups say the state is focusing on the wrong tactics with House Bill 1116 which passed out of the Senate elections committee on Monday despite opposition from Democrats.
