Time to Take Action

In 2014, 44 out of 100 candidates for the Indiana House and 10 out of 25 candidates for the Indiana Senate had no opponents.  Why? Because the legislature draws the district maps creating an unfair advantage for the majority party.  The result is no competition and dismal voter turnout which continued in 2016 and 2018. 

It’s time for voters to choose their legislators, rather than legislators choosing their voters.
