FairVote Calls the 2018 House Elections… and Forecasts 2022
Date: Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017
Time: 9:15am – 10:30 am
Location: Stewart R. Mott House,
Coffee and light refreshments available. RSVP by noon on Sept. 27
FairVote, a nonpartisan champion of electoral reforms and developer of the “partisan index,” presents its bi-annual report, “Monopoly Politics,” an in-depth analysis of U.S. House elections and the structural origins of the polarization, partisan bias, and striking lack of competition that plague Congressional politics. The report projects winners in every 2018 U.S. House race; it includes what it believes are safe projections in more than 85 percent of seats using a model that has missed a single race in 2012-2016.
FairVote will also review its new report on a simulation of congressional plans that would be established by H.R. 3057, The Fair Representation Act. H.R. 3057 would establish a combination of independent commissions, ranked choice voting, and larger districts that elect more than one seat. The simulations show it would: 1) create a level playing field for the major parties; 2) provide shared representation of both parties in nearly every district; 3) increase electoral opportunities for women and people of color.
