VC Tim Draper’s crowdsourced initiative has received several hundred ideas.
Here’s a breakdown of the top issues entrants had addressed by early June.
- Almost 42 percent of the concepts submitted focused on how to improve representation and the legislative process. So far it has been the most-addressed topic in the competition and brought up solutions like a unicameral legislature and a tech-driven government.
- Nearly 22 percent of the ideas dealt with infrastructure and water conservation. Between improving transportation and looking for new ways to save water, the issues were a major focus for concerned residents.
- Close to 14 percent of the entries wanted to improve the state through business initiatives.
- Ten percent of the entries were aimed at education. Ideas ranged from offering more college courses in high school to finding alternative ways to finance schools.
