<p align="justify">''The government of Indiana is established and regulated by the Constitution of Indiana. With the state-level government consisting of three branches - the judicial branch, the legislative branch and the executive branch - a balance of shared power jointly govern the state of Indiana. The government of Indiana was first formed in December 1816 and replaced the government of the Indiana Territory. The early government came under criticism beginning as early as the 1820s for having many public offices filled by appointment and lack of delegation of authority to lower officials, requiring state level legislation for things like divorce approval. In 1851 a new constitution was adopted by the state remedying many of these problems and opening many more office to public election. Currently, Indiana has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 100 members of the Indiana House of Representatives and 25 members of the Indiana State Senate. As of September 2013, Indiana is one of 24 Republican state government trifectas.

Welcome to Indiana on Ballotpedia!


The government of Indiana is established and regulated by the Constitution of Indiana. With the state-level government consisting of three branches - the judicial branch, the legislative branch and the executive branch - a balance of shared power jointly govern the state of Indiana. The government of Indiana was first formed in December 1816 and replaced the government of the Indiana Territory. The early government came under criticism beginning as early as the 1820s for having many public offices filled by appointment and lack of delegation of authority to lower officials, requiring state level legislation for things like divorce approval. In 1851 a new constitution was adopted by the state remedying many of these problems and opening many more office to public election. Currently, Indiana has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 100 members of the Indiana House of Representatives and 25 members of the Indiana State Senate. As of September 2013, Indiana is one of 24 Republican state government trifectas.
