Ranked Choice Voting (RCV): A conversation with David Daley, Senior Fellow for FairVote
Join us for an evening with David Daley, Senior Fellow with FairVote. David will lead a conversation on Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), a non-partisan voting infrastructure that is growing in popularity throughout the US. RCV has been implemented in a number of state primary and general election processes.
David Daley is a senior fellow for FairVote and the author of Ratf**ked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy, which helped spark the recent drive to reform gerrymandering. Dave's second book, Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy, chronicles the victories and defeats in state efforts to reform elections and uphold voting rights. A frequent lecturer and media source about gerrymandering, he is the former editor-in-chief of Salon.com, and the former CEO and publisher of the Connecticut News Project. He is a digital media fellow at the Wilson Center for the Humanities and the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, The Washington Post, The Guardian, New York magazine, the Atlantic, the Boston Globe, Rolling Stone, Details, and he's been on CNN and NPR. When writing for the Hartford Courant, he helped identify Mark Felt as the "Deep Throat" source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.
FairVote is the national driving force behind advancing ranked choice voting (RCV) and proportional RCV in legislative districts to give voters more choices, fairer representation and better government. The country's leading authority on RCV, FairVote advises state and national partners on its uses and implementations, from more than 23 cities in Utah to New York City. Two states - Alaska and Maine - have adopted ranked choice voting for their elections for Congress and president.
