State Legislatures Are KEY

State legislatures not only create the laws that affect the everyday lives of their constituents, they also play a critical role in determining the districts for the U.S. House of Representatives and thus the fate of the entire country. As new districts come into play after the 2020 census, it will be critical to maintain and extend our Democratic gains in the face of overwhelming Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression. Local Majority provides research that is practical and accessible to support Democratic campaigns for state legislature. Support our efforts or volunteer with us!

Our State 2023

We are working on Virginia 2023 this year to help flip the entire Legislature to a Democratic majority. We are working hard to retain state Senate control and to flip back the state House of Delegates.  Only three seats are needed to flip in the House. The fascist Republican Governor and majority of this purple state have been very busy trampling on voting rights, education, worker's rights, criminal justice reforms, LGBTQ+ rights, and much more.

Republican legislators have ignored the will of Arizonans on a number of issues. Among those issues are the minimum wage, school funding, ease of voting, the ability of localities to tighten rules where appropriate, and the initiative process itself. This has been going on for a long time. Even the voter-initiated Arizona Voter Protection Act―passed in 1998―has not deterred Republicans; they have repeatedly ignored its provisions.  

Thwarting the Will of the Voters - July 7, 2022



The Republican-controlled Arizona legislature has voted down bills intended to increase police accountability and instead has passed bills further shielding police officers and departments from oversight and accountability. So, while most of the country is moving forward on police reform and addressing racist and excessive use of force, Arizona has been backsliding to even further shield police officers accused of unnecessary violence against the public they are supposed to serve.

Backsliding on Police Reform in Arizona       -       May 20, 2022



The United States is a backsliding democracy. That is the consensus of numerous international organizations that study and rate the health of democracies around the world. Arizona Republicans have introduced about 10% of all voter suppression legislation in the country. Republicans don’t want you to vote—especially if you are young, a person of color, or poor.  They have made it harder to vote in every way they possibly can. The Republican attack on voting rights is not just anti-Democrat; it is anti-democracy. Gutting the citizen initiative process, raising barriers to voting by mail, severely reducing the number of polling places, limiting acceptable forms of voter IDs, disenfranchising former offenders—these are just some of the ways that Republican policies are undermining the fundamental democratic institution of a citizen’s right to vote.

In two years, Democrats have passed:

      • Voting rights bills to make access to voting easier and prevent discrimination.
      • Climate change bills to eliminate coal-burning plants, expand renewables and electric vehicles, and create jobs in clean energy.
      • Worker protection bills to increase the minimum wage and protect workers from underpayment.
      • Equal Rights Amendment to guarantee equal legal rights regardless of sex, becoming the 38th and final state needed for ratification to amend the US Constitution.
      • Education bills to increase funding to schools and teachers and make community college free for low- and middle-income students.
      • Gun protection bills with mandatory background checks, red flag law removing weapons from people deemed a threat, and limits on the quantities of guns buyable each month.
      • Criminal justice reform, abolishing the death penalty, legalizing marijuana, and reforming the police.
