  • A Congress for Everyone: The Impact of the Fair Representation Act
    Date: February 4, 2020
    Location: Washington, DC
    Category: Voting Rights

    FairVote and the Election Reformers Network have teamed up to host a Symposium called, A Congress for Everyone: The Impact of the Fair Representation Act on Tuesday, February 4. It’s free and will be held at the New York University campus in Washington, DC starting at 3pm. At a time when Americans increasingly feel like our elections are broken, a bold new proposal has been put forward that could, in the words of the New York Times editorial page, create “A Congress for Every American.” The Fair Representation Act is intended to solve our problems of partisan gerrymandering and uncompetitive elections by replacing our winner-take-all system with a fair and proportional system: ranked choice voting in multi-winner districts. Hear scholars and practitioners discuss what impact the Fair Representation Act would have on our democracy.

    Who should attend? Everyone who touches campaigns and elections, including elected officials, candidates, campaign staff, political parties and state and local election workers.

They are designed to provide information for campaigns and election officials on how to defend against digital hazards and cyber attacks and to keep people and systems safe and secure.
