Independent Voter Network, 24 March 2015
In recent weeks, there have been three electoral reform stories in the U.S. – the stories of Lawrence Lessig (get corporate money out of politics), Peter Ackerman (expand presidential debates beyond the two parties that monopolize power), and California (voter-drawn districts that end gerrymandering).
Below is a graphic that highlights 8 parts to electoral reform. Our task is to nurture a public conversation about all eight – together – and now, in 2015. An Electoral Reform Act of 2015 is possible, in time to allow for the election of an honest government in 2016.
