The People Versus the Politicians: A Deep Dive into Electoral Reform (7 weeks) Starts Nov. 1

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Do you wish your vote mattered more? Are you tired of dark money controlling elections? Do you wonder why your electoral district looks like the letter “K”? Is there no middle ground? Why can the two parties not compromise or work together? Why is there no voice for independents? Join us for a deep dive into the world of election reform. Through a combination of web videos and printed materials, we will explore the psychology of liberals and conservatives; how the two parties control our choices; party primaries and ranked-choice voting; the challenge of redistricting; campaign finance; voting administration; barriers to entry, and possibilities for change. Hedrick Smith, a Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist and producer of the PBS documentary The Democracy Rebellion may join us for one session ( Links to videos and reading assignments will be provided in Canvas. Join us and plan to participate, have fun, and solve all the problems of U.S. election politics.
