Clearly, our voting system is not effective. It is cumbersome, error-prone (either deliberately or accidentally), and most important, doesn’t give fair representation.
So, we have a new page on voting reform!
Our first article is an Op-Ed by William Pietz, co-chair of the California Instant Runoff Voting Coalition .
He details why Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) is a good idea, since among other benefits, it eliminates the need for primaries and negates the spoiler effect.
We will be adding information on proportional representation and touchscreen voting soon.
