Approval Voting is the Easy Way to Fix Major Problems

Jeff Justice

11 a.m., December 22, 2019

Our current voting method (choose one) has major problems. It causes society to polarize. It allows voting splitting and spoilers to select unpopular candidates. It suppresses third-parties and new ideas.

A simple and effective solution is Approval Voting. Approval Voting is the system that lets you vote for all the candidates you like, including your favorite.

Jeff Justice is a board member of The Center for Election Science, which advocates for better voting methods. In this talk, he will explain why his group settled on Approval Voting as the simplest way to dramatically improve our democracy.


After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
