"It's time to level the playing field so all voters have a voice in American democracy." - FairVote

Rob Richie, president and CEO of FairVote will speak on Ranked Choice Voting and other election reforms. It’s easy to see that something is broken in American politics. It’s harder to figure out why – or how – to move forward. Join us to learn more about solutions that give voters more voice and greater choice in their elections.

When: Thursday, February 10th at 4pm PST (5pm MT | 6pm CT | 7pm ET)
Where: Online via Zoom.

It will appear once the program starts at 4pm Pacific Time on February 10th.
