Watch: FairVote webinars explore reforms to American elections

This year, FairVote has held several webinars that take a close look at the flaws in our elections and how they can be reformed to better serve the public. The webinars have brought together panelists with unique and valuable perspectives on the topic, including former candidates, officeholders, academics, or businesspeople. We will continue to hold webinars throughout the Fall as part of our series, The Future of American Elections.

Videos of each webinar we have held so far can be found below.
