California Initiative for Neighborhood Legislature Enters Circulation

On December 19, the California Secretary of State announced that the Neighborhood Legislature initiative may begin to collect signatures, to qualify for the 2014 ballot. The proposal would amend the California Constitution. Currently California has 40 State Senators and 80 Assemblymembers. The initiative would provide for 8,000 Assembly districts and 4,000 State Senate districts. Each Assembly district would have approximately 5,000 voters. Each district would elect a state legislator, but then the 100 state legislators within that district would elect one person to send to Sacramento. See www.neighborhoodlegislature.com for more details.

The measure is sponsored by John Cox, who has been active in the Republican Party in the past. He is believed to have the financial resources necessary to get the measure on the ballot.

    1. Have ANY of the brain dead reformers in CA heard about P.R. (around since the 1840s – repeat 1840s) ???

    2. The MORON math gerrymander scheme will make the minority rule even worse.

    1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8 will control indirectly.

  2. Edward Hagenbach-Bischoff lived between around 1833 and 1910 and he wrote the best system of PR using percentages which the 9th USA Parliament has been demonstrating for 18 consecutive years online at http://www.usparliament.org and it works great!

    We’re an all inclusive group which often elects 100% of the names yet still makes great decisions through ranked choice consensus voting.

    Simple majority rule (50% plus one) and hand counted paper ballots (HCPB) are foundations on which we are trying to build. Next launch is 1/1/2014.
