Krist Novoselic was a member of the groundbreaking rock band Nirvana. After Nirvana, Novoselic went on to become one of rock's most politically-minded musicians. He has also committed himself to numerous community projects and has become an influential part of the Northwest political scene.
In 2004, Krist did a national book tour with FairVote, promoting his book "Of Grunge & Government: Let's Fix This Broken Democracy!" In the book, Novoselic discusses how Nirvana emerged as the world's biggest band of the early 1990s, how he got involved in politics and why we need electoral reform -- in particular full representation and instant runoff voting. The tour was well-covered in the media, including taping by C-SPAN and an interview in the New Yorker. Krist joined FairVote's Board in 2005 and was elected chair in 2008.
