Veterans for All Voters
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.
"Participation and Competition are the bedrock foundations of an effective Republic. In the last 30 years, the participation in our elections has nosedived while all but a handful of states have become supermajority for one or the other of or major parties. As a result, the political environment has become both more toxic and less reflective of our citizens. As veterans, we know better than anyone how critical the decisions made by elected officials have on the strength of the country whether at the national level or local.
Also as veterans, we have a unique status in that all political leanings are inclined to grant us initial respect. We need to ensure that we are effectively leveraging that opportunity to advocate for stronger processes, greater election integrity and increased participation. Of course that starts with encouraging all veteran to participate in Civics."
