Contemporary World Issues: Voting


The Voting Information Project
Helps voters find information about their elections with collaborative, open-source tools.

Nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that seeks out new ways to make the US political process more democratic. It supports a wide range of solutions, including a national popular vote, lowering the voting age, universal voter registration, ranked choice voting, and open ticket voting. The group examines disparities created by gerrymandering, skewed primary elections, limited voter choice, and the marginalization of third-party platforms. The FairVote website offers activist tool kits, policy guides, maps, reports, election information, congressional rules, and an archive of news and press releases.
