FairVote advocates for forms of proportional representation voting methods informed by American, candidate-centered values, called fair representation voting. Unlike European systems, which generally focus on party lists, FairVote's fair representation voting methods are American solutions using American ideas. Under fair representation systems in the United States, voters would and do vote for individual candidates and have representatives tied to their communities.
