What is the National Initiative for Democracy / Direct Democracy?

The  National Initiative for Democracy (NI4D) is a proposal which will permit the People to make or change laws by initiative at all levels of government, including at the federal level.

The National Initiative for Democracy (NI4D) is a proposed Constitutional amendment which recognizes the Peoples' right to make laws and a federal law which spells out orderly procedures for the People to develop and vote on laws.
The Democracy Amendment, a proposed amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, will:

  1. recognize the legislative power of the people to make laws
  2. permit the people to amend a constitution by holding two successive elections, more than six months but less than one year apart
  3. create the Electoral Trust to administer the procedures established by the Democracy Amendment and Act,
  4. outlaw the use of funds from non-natural persons (for example corporate funds) in initiative elections under this article, and
  5. outlaw non-natural persons (for example corporations) from sponsoring initiatives under this article.

The Democracy Act, a proposed federal law, will:

  1. set out deliberative procedures to be used by citizens to create laws by initiative,
  2. describe the key responsibilities of the Electoral Trust which shall administer the initiative process on behalf of the people, and
  3. appropriate funds for the Electoral Trust from the United States Treasury

The National Initiative does not change or eliminate Congress, the President, or the judicial system. Laws created by initiative must still stand up in the courts just like laws created by Congress. The National Initiative adds an additional check –– the People –– to our system of checks and balances, while setting up a working partnership between the People and their elected representatives. 
The full text of the proposed Amendment and Act are available at: www.ni4d.us and www.nationalinitiative.us

Instant Runoff Voting Is Sweeping the Country!

Instant runoff voting (IRV) is one of the most exciting electoral reforms in the United States. Voters have approved IRV by significant margins in nearly all municipalities and cities where it has been introduced to voters. IRV legislation is also rapidly gaining support in a number of state legislatures.
What is IRV?
IRV is a voting system for single-winner elections that guarantees majority winners in a single round of voting. IRV allows voters to vote their hopes instead of their fears by ranking candidates in order of preference without worrying about spoiler dynamics or wasted votes. IRV also eliminates the need for low-turnout, high-cost runoffs.
