State-based Support of Reform Campaigns

Veterans for Political Innovation's work starts in Wisconsin in the fall of 2021, to educate voters and the military-connected community about a powerful election innovation called Final-Five Voting.
VPI intends to support ballot initiative campaigns, in at least 2-3 other states (TBD) for this same innovation.
Veterans for Political Innovation is on a mission to make our political system less toxic and more competitive by mobilizing veterans to advocate for specific election innovations. We have a state-based theory of change because states control the vast majority of election laws.
