Voters Lifting Democracy Reform Issues

Common Cause

As Americans cast their votes today, one message of the 2016 election already is clear: left, right and center, people are determined to make our democracy again work for them and their families.

While journalists have focused on the public’s frustration with politics as usual, largely missed in the run-up to today’s election has been a burgeoning and increasingly successful nationwide movement for democracy reform. From the presidential primaries to a plethora of state and local ballot initiatives, voters are pushing for bold steps to create a 21st Century democracy.
