FairVote

FairVote is a nonpartisan organization working to generate civility and civil discourse in government through voting reforms and research.

WHY WE INVESTED

By linking citizens and their representatives, elections are central to what policies are debated, what options are considered and what government does. FairVote (FV) has taken the lead in focusing on reform of structural electoral rules and has introduced policy ideas that today have growing support, from universal voter registration to the National Popular Vote plan. It continues to utilize its programing and projects to become widely regarded as a national advocate for ranked choice voting (RCV) program, fair representation voting, Representation2020.com, PromoteOurVote.com, and Electoral College Reform.

With a history of working with scholars, civic leaders, policymakers and journalists from across the political spectrum, FairVote uses their unique networks, analysis, strategic insight, and body of research as a catalyst for electoral reform and the protection of voting rights at the federal, state, and local level.
