Fair Representation Voting: American, candidate-based forms of proportional representation.
In the United States, more than three and a half million people use fair representation voting to elect their local officials in nearly one hundred local governments. Through legal and voter education work, FairVote has played an important role in this progress in dozens of jurisdictions, including new wins in 2014.
For nearly two decades we have published Monopoly Politics and Dubious Democracy reports every two years, changing the national conversation about noncompetitive elections to focus on structural reform. On November 6, 2014, we called the winners in nearly nine out of ten House elections set to take place more than two years later in 2016 – as we simultaneously build support for an Act of Congress to allow every voter to participate in meaningful elections.
Our Representation 2020 project distributed more than 2,000 State of Women's Representation 2014 reports that feature the positive impact fair representation voting can have on women's representation.
