Madeline Kane

Madeline (Maddie) Kane grew up in the DC area and thus a contentious political environment has become a very natural setting for her. She is a sophomore at Colgate University and intends to major in Political Science and minor in Art History. She previously interned at the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum in the Public Affairs office. She likes to focus on women’s (and other underrepresented groups') role in politics. In her free time, she likes to watch Lost, talk about feminism and capitalism, and go to Redskins games.

Posted on July 07, 2016

Growing up in the DC area I have been surrounded by politics for my entire life. Whether it was family, friends or teachers, everyone seemed to have an opinion--democrat, republican or independent--and everyone always seemed to disagree. Despite this initial disagreement, what everyone seems to agree on is that the electoral system is, in most ways, breaking down. This 2016 election season shows, more than ever, that something is deeply wrong with American politics. It goes beyond the candidates and parties involved. Something needs to be changed with the way that we are voting in order to reflect our population. This idea, that our voting system should be a reflection of the voters, seems very simple to me yet somehow has been difficult to adopt in practice.
