Voting Reform Advocacy – The Nation

Filed under: politics — Tags: , — codesmithy @ 8:32 am

The Nation has an excellent post by Katrina vanden Heuvel about reforming the voting process. It has some good information about the role instant run-off voting has had in Australia’s politics. Although, I like Condorcet method better than Hare, those are technical details that I’m more than willing to put off for later. I don’t want what I feel is the best solution derail a good solution. Hare is definitely better than what we current have. Reforming the voting process is simply a matter of marketing: think globally, act locally. Try to reform local election processes to use instant run-off voting. Once people are familiar with it and trust it and start to see better results, then there will be enough upward pressure to get a national initiative.
