Background on FairVote

FairVote leads the nation in proposing and winning innovations to improve our democracy, grounded in a belief that representative democracy depends upon respect for every vote and every voice.

We' have made great progress since 1992 when our organization's founders like John Anderson and Hendrik Hertzberg came together to form an organization to advance reform. Although we regularly generate media coverage for our reform, we don’t just talk – we work in communities to win and defend change.

Our ideas are winning in states and cities across the nation: the ranked choice voting method of instant runoff voting, the National Popular Vote plan for president, voter pre-registration for young Americans, proportional voting systems and redistricting reform all had new wins and first implementations in recent years. Our 2009 video on the power of a new wave of democracy explains how each such victories makes more victories possible.

Here's a little more background on our work from recent year-end messages to our supporters:
