Veterans for Political Innovation
State Leaders are on-the-ground advocates for election innovations in their home states. The situation on the ground is different in each state. For example, some innovations happen in the state legislatures while other changes can happen at the ballot box.
"More and more voters are bitterly divided along political lines, and nothing good happens when citizens view their political opponents as enemies. Even as Congress has been largely dysfunctional for some time, the trend has reached new heights. I believe a dysfunctional government should be viewed as a threat to national security, and reforms like Final Five Voting are designed to mitigate the threat. This website reports that 49% of veterans self-identify as politically independent. That is understandable, because there is no role for partisan politics in military service. One mission- one team. I am proud to support the mission of enacting electoral reforms aimed at combating a toxic, polarized, and dangerous political environment."
