FairVote Advances Fairer Presidential Elections
The Boston Globe and smaller papers like the Daily Freemanin New York have joined newspapers like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Sun Times in endorsing the National Popular Vote plan, while a rapidly growing number of state legislators are backing the proposal. FairVote remains optimistic that the plan will be in place by 2012.
Meanwhile, FairVote's Fix The Primaries project is sparking widespread media attention to our calls for parties to institute more democratic processes to pick their presidential nominees. FairVote's Rob Richie has appeared on dozens of radio and television programs, including national programs Bloomberg Television, Democracy Now and FAIR's Counterspin.
