Announcing our summer panel series in collaboration with NYUDialogues entitled Democracy Next: Voices, Votes & Vision.

The launch of the FairVote-NYUDialogues series on Democracy Next: Voices, Votes and Vision takes place on June 27th, 2013, with a forum featuring three current and former members of Congress. The topic of the forum is Beyond Polarization and Gerrymandering, with a focus on fair representation voting alternatives to winner-take-all elections. Following the forum, FairVote will celebrate 21 years of research and analysis in the effort to reform our electoral system to respect every vote and every voice. Subsequent summer forums will address the right to vote, presidential elections and women's representation.
