Better Elections Are Possible


Democracy depends on the voices of everybody, not just the wealthy and well-connected. Through its research and advocacy, FairVote has fought to ensure that the voices of women, racial minorities, and low-income Americans are heard in the halls of power. American government should reflect the incredible diversity in our country, and the team at FairVote works every day to bring this goal to fruition.
