They ran to represent YOU… so what will they do for our democracy?

The Our Democracy Connecticut campaign makes sure voters know their newly elected or re-elected state senators’ positions on the democracy issues that matter to all Americans.

We are asking where every newly elected or re-elected Connecticut state senator stands on four important pro-democracy reforms – and with your help we will hold them accountable to their answers.

No single solution will solve all the challenges our democracy faces, but this four-point agenda helps policy makers and voters know there are concrete steps we can take and proven solutions we can pass to make our government work for everyone.

Read about and share our solutions for a stronger democracy

We must make sure Connecticut state senators know how important democracy issues are to voters — and that we expect them to let us know where they stand on our common-sense democracy solutions. Now that their elections are decided, we must keep mobilizing to find out where the winners stand on key democracy issues and hold them accountable to their answers — so we can strengthen our democracy in 2021 and beyond.

This questionnaire’s sole purpose is to advance the issues being addressed — Common Cause does not support or endorse candidates for elected office.

Since 1970, Common Cause in Connecticut has been working to hold power accountable through lobbying, litigation, and organizing. Our non-partisan, pro-democracy work has helped pass hundreds of reforms at the federal, state, and local levels. Our more than 1.2 million members and more than 30 state organizations around the country work to strengthen our democracy by empowering the voices of everyday Americans in government.
