Represent.Us members bring powerful anti- corruption reforms to the ballot, where the people can vote for them directly. To date, the work Represent.Us has taken on has led to wins in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Illinois, Oregon, South Dakota, California, Florida, and is quickly making its way across the country.
