About Us

Posted: December 16, 2011 in Uncategorized
Occupy the Ballot: Indiana is a non-partisan, citizen driven organization. Our goal is to allow the registered voters of Indiana to petition for issues to be placed on the ballot for a statewide vote. This would give every voter the ability to shape Indiana’s political discourse.
Our system of government was designed for our representatives to be responsible to their constituents, but  the current political situation gives emphasis to large donors, lobbyists, and special interest groups. Ballot initiatives are one way to return the power to the American citizen.
Currently, 24 states have the right to petition driven ballot initiatives.  Indiana has none of these rights and Occupy the Ballot: Indiana intends on changing that situation.  Please take a few moments to look into this important issue.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us so we can answer your inquiries or visit our FAQ page.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  We feel direct democracy techniques are the best way for citizens to participate in their government. Voter turnout is higher in states with ballot initiative rights, and voters with these rights can impact issues directly without choosing between political parties or candidates. Join us today in our fight for freedom, liberty, and opportunity.
