FairVote and the Election Reformers Network have teamed up to host a Symposium called, A Congress for Everyone: The Impact of the Fair Representation Act on Tuesday, February 4. It’s free and will be held at the New York University campus in Washington, DC starting at 3pm.
At a time when Americans increasingly feel like our elections are broken, a bold new proposal has been put forward that could, in the words of the New York Times editorial page, create “A Congress for Every American.” The Fair Representation Act is intended to solve our problems of partisan gerrymandering and uncompetitive elections by replacing our winner-take-all system with a fair and proportional system: ranked choice voting in multi-winner districts. Hear scholars and practitioners discuss what impact the Fair Representation Act would have on our democracy.
New York University, Washington, DC has listed detailed for the event on their website. For those who cannot attend, we will be promoting their live stream.
