Description

Our current elections require systemic reforms to counter racial and partisan gerrymandering, increase voter participation, overcome zero-sum polarization, and advance a reflective and representative democracy. Ranked choice voting (RCV) and Fair Representation reforms, including when used in multi-winner districts, address these challenges and can help build a culture of participation and broad engagement that allows diverse and marginalized communities the power to make a difference on issues that impact their lives.

With RCV already implemented in dozens of cities, and new reforms for RCV and Fair Representation being pushed at more local and state levels, this session will explore the current landscape of these reforms, highlight benefits seen from them, and show how funders have promoted and can continue to promote these.
