Democracy

Your Elected Officials

Indiana's form of government is closely modeled on the federal government with three branches: executive, legislative and judicial. The Governor, elected for a four-year term, heads the executive branch.

Indiana Legislature

The General Assembly, the legislative branch, consists of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Indiana's fifty State Senators are elected for four-year terms and one hundred State Representatives for two-year terms. In odd-numbered years, the General Assembly meets in a sixty-one day session. In even-numbered years, the Assembly meets for thirty session days.

Understanding Indiana Courts

The judicial branch consists of the Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and local circuit courts.
