Business Related Gov Forms

California has many forms that a business has to fill out. They don't accept most of these forms online, and thus must be filled out by had and mailed in. It is also hard to find which forms need to be filled out. There should be a website so that these forms can be filled out online with autofill, good design, and ease of use. The website-owning-organization would then print out the paper forms in the format that the ...more »

Four Californias

Four Californians allows counties that border Nevada, Arizona and Oregon to determine which state they wish to affiliate. The idea is simple. The counties that border neighboring states have the right vote to succeed from California and join that state. Once the Neighboring state agrees to accept them, we will redraw the borders to reflect the new state boundaries. California needs a refresh. Our public schools ...more »

Create the Six Provinces of California

Instead of six new states, create six new Provinces using the same plan as the proposed Six Californias. Drastically reduce the size and power of the State government by transferring most of the authority to the Provinces. There is a proposal to do this in New York State.

Unicameral Legislature with Proportional Representation

There is no reason for California to maintain a bicameral legislature. Since the Reynolds v. Sims ruling, state Upper and Lower houses in most US states have been effectively identical, and nowhere more so than in California, where the Senate is merely a half-sized copy of the Assembly with arbitrarily differing powers. It would be only sensible, in terms of efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and fairness, to consolidate ...more »

Voting through social media !

This idea is geared towards people between the age 18 and 28 (currently voting less than 9% of the time) so that their voices are heard and more accurately represented in the legislative process. Non-presidential voting issues would be presented in a persons newsfeed, similar to a sponsored add on Facebook, but the voting box would have a special "Government Sponsored" tag letting users know that this was ...more »

Bring actual democracy to the U.S.A.

California and the United States are Republics, not true democratic states, due to vote count distortions like first past the post and gerrymandered districts, which all mathematically decay into single party +1 states of unequal representation. Well known voting methods that require only trivial ballot changes, studied by institutions like The Center For Election Science, can mitigate the effects and unearned power ...more »

Make all votes count through fair Electoral College reform

California has the largest number of Electoral College votes in the United States with 55. Like all but two states (Maine & Nebraska), CA awards its EC votes on a winner-take-all basis, nullifying the votes of MILLIONS of Californians every presidential election (exact same outcome as the popular vote). Since CA is one of the few states that has an independent commission to draw congressional districts, now is the time ...more »

Tie traffic ticket / citation fines to income!

Fines for tickets / citations should be linked to your income as they are NOW in Europe. As the gap between rich and poor continues to grow, fines continue to grow. In the past 15 years fines have increased by 500%! In light of the current unprecedented inequality, it is a gross injustice to ruin someone's life, livelihood and ability to earn a living by imposing flat fines without regard to income or ability to pay. ...more »
