FairVote is a non-partisan non-profit organization that seeks to makes democracy fair, functional, and representative by developing the analysis and educational tools necessary for reform advocates to win and sustain improvements to American elections. Rob Richie is executive director and Krist Novoselic is board chair.
We believe there are simple, common sense ways to strengthen our democracy and ensure all voices are heard, all views are respected, and every vote really counts. That's why we work to study these problems, develop practical solutions, and work with national, state and local partners to advance reforms that result in fairer elections.
When it comes to elections and electoral reform, FairVote speakers are a cut above the rest. Their breadth of experience generates powerful and unique discussions on what it means to participate in a representative democracy in the 21st Century. We have a diverse list of speakers including noted authors, current and former politicians, musicians, academics, voting rights experts and many others. As frequent media contributors, they have been guests on major networks and published commentary in most major newspapers in the United States. Addressing a wide array of audiences - from state legislators to high school students - FairVote speakers bring a new approach to talking about election reform.
FairVote does certain speaking engagements without a fee, but typically receives an honorarium and coverage for travel expenses.
