Overview
FairVote is the nation’s leading national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization focused on electoral reforms designed to give voters more voice, greater choice, and fairer representation. It uses its unique networks, analysis, strategic insight, and research as a catalyst for change at the local, state, and federal level. A sparkplug for several popular reforms, FairVote is the leading proponent of ranked choice voting (RCV). Maine’s adoption of RCV for state and congressional elections has drawn national interest to RCV as a means to enhance other reforms and encourage more collaborative governance and civil elections. A three-year grant will allow FairVote to expands its partnerships to advance RCV, provide allies with better tools to debate and implement RCV, drive the conversation for how RCV can improve democracy for all voters, and strengthen FairVote’s organizational capacity.
