As Americans, we expect our voices to be heard, our views to be respected, and our votes to truly count. But gridlock, low turnout elections, and increased polarization are preventing American democracy from living up to the expectations of its citizens. It’s easy to see that something is broken in American politics. It’s harder to figure out why – or how to move forward. On our Issues page FairVote examines some of the most pressing problems in American democracy and advances ways to address these issues.
