CAP Action released a huge report in July - The Health of State Democracies, which ranks ALL 50 STATES across 22 factors in the 3 categories of accessibility of the ballot, representation in state government, and influence in the political system, with each state also getting a grade for each category.
The report comes with a lot of resources including a great interactive website www.healthofstatedemocracies.org
The authors of the report will be hosting a briefing call for members of the NLC community on August 18.
