RepresentUs is a powerful organization made up of independents, progressives, and conservatives is building on America’s long tradition of pursuing federal reform through the states.
In 2018, RepresentUs helped with efforts throughout the country that led to the passage of twenty-three transformative anti-corruption laws, from anti-gerrymandering and ranked choice voting to sweeping ethics and transparency laws, in cities and states—more than in any other year in our nation’s history.
The Ranked Choice Voting Resource Center provides a compilation of best practices and first-hand experiences from jurisdictions that have used this method of voting. This website and overall project serve as a resource for voters, election administrators, policy makers, and candidates.
Massachusetts voters will be voting on ranked choice voting on November 3, 2020. Voter Choice Massachusetts led the campaign to get RCV on the ballot and is working in support of the ballot proposal to give voters in Massachusetts "a stronger voice" when they cast our ballots, "and guarantee that our elected leaders are supported by a true majority."
Ballot Measure Two, which will be on the ballot in Alaska on November 3, 2020, combines three common sense electoral reforms for a better Alaska. It ends the influence of dark money; opens primaries to all voters; and allows voters in the general election to rank candidates in the order of their preference.
These nonpartisan reforms are designed to put the power of Alaska’s electoral system back into the hands of voters where it belongs – not in the hands of special interests or party elites.
“Unbreaking America: Solving the Corruption Crisis”
Does the will of we, the people, influence the bills that Congress passes? A study that took data from nearly 2,000 public-opinion surveys and compared what the people wanted to what the government actually did found that: “The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy."
