HARTFORD, Connecticut: A new poll conducted by the Hartford Courant and the University of Connecticut shows that the citizens of the state want to be a part of the initiative and referendum process, as it is one of the 26 states in the nation that does not have such a process. The poll's results showed solid support for implementation of the law. In the 2008 general election, voters approved a ballot question asking for a constitutional convention. According to an editorial posted by former state legislator John Woodcock III, that shows how much citizens wanted to be a part of the initiative procedure. Woodcock III is a member of the Connecticut Citizens for Ballot Initiative.

According to the results of the poll, 65% were in favor of a ballot initiative law, while 30% showed opposition. 5% of those polled were undecided.[1][2]
