Last week Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D -IL) introduced a pair of powerful bills aimed at election reform.
H.R.5293 would require states to conduct general elections for Federal office using an instant runoff voting system.
H.J.R. 109 would amend the Constitution to abolish the electoral college and provide for direct election of the president by majority vote.
FairVote also is working with Congressman Jackson in support of a right to vote in the U.S. Constitution.
