  • Citizens Have Right to be Heard

    When legislators don't pass laws agreeable to thousands of citizens in one state, the initiative petition process is one way to get laws on the books. Ballot initiatives are wonderful ideas in the United States and should always be allowed as long as due process is followed in getting enough signatures to get the question on the ballot.

  • Initiatives help democracy

    Citizen Initiatives help forward democracy by reminding political leaders and huge special interest groups that they can still be out voted. An excellent example is the recent initiative for a trigger option for parents of children in low performing schools in California, a measure vehemently opposed by teachers unions but ultimately put into effect.
