Americans continue to improve their democracy. New contributions include ideas on changing traditional, "vote for one", winner-take-all elections. North Carolina and cities like Oakland (CA) are using instant runoff voting this November. A new movie on Gerrymandering highlights problems with the status quo and suggests proportional voting as a long-term solution.
Recent updates in the area of voting reform include:
- Jo McKeegan spotlighted Delaware adopting voter pre-registration for 16-year-olds.
- Instant runoff voting was featured in the New Republic and In These Times and upheld by a federal judge.
- EndGerrymandering coalition features documentary going into national release. Read Florida opinion on cumulative voting.
