How district's elect the US House of Representatives

June 2017 / Voting Reform Proposed in the US Congress

Did you know that more than 85% of congressional seats are completely safe for one party?

“The Fair Representation Act is the most comprehensive approach to improving congressional elections in American history,” said Rob Richie, the executive director of FairVote. “It creates an impartial, national standard that gets at the core of FairVote’s mission: Giving voters greater choice, a stronger voice, and a representative democracy that works for all Americans.”

The Fair Representation Act would move US House elections into multi-member districts drawn by independent redistricting commissions, and elected through ranked choice voting. The multi-member districts would be effective in states apportioned six or more seats in the House, and would elect three to five Representatives each, depending on the size of the state. Taken together, these three measures would incentivize congressional candidates to appeal to a broader range of voters.

Model Voter Registration Law: Expand the Vote, Expand Democratic Participation

Oregon is first-in-the-nation with a prototype for... automatic registration...

The "motor voter" bill: An ebullient Governor Brown called it a "unique and humbling opportunity" when she signed House Bill 2177 on March 16 -- creating a first-in-the-nation system that automatically registers Oregon voters (with an opt-out window) by drawing data from their driver's license records.

"There’s absolutely no good reason for such proposals not to be adopted — and not just state-by-state, either. There’s no good reason for the burden of voter registration to be on the voter, instead of on the government."
"Indeed, the United States is unusual in making it hard by requiring a two-step process for eligible voters — that is, registering and then voting. Most world democracies have automatic registration."

June 2015

"Everyone, every young man or young woman, in every state in the union should be automatically registered to vote when they turn 18—unless they actively choose to opt out. But I believe this would have a profound impact on our elections and our democracy. Between a quarter and a third of all eligible Americans remain unregistered and therefore unable to vote." -- Hillary Clinton / Speech, Houston, TX
