Sightline senior researcher Kristin Eberhard recently spoke about alternative voting systems on KBOO, a community radio station based in Portland. In her interview, Kristin explains how outdated voting systems can lead to unrepresentative democracies and disenfranchised voters. She then describes how Oregon and Washington can guide the United States towards proportional representation voting that engages more people, better reflects diverse communities, and guarantees democratic results.

Kristin also takes a look at how third parties are more successful within alternative voting systems.
