We organize around a common goal of allowing voters to best represent themselves at the polls in a simple, understandable, and cost-effective manner, which more fully reflects the complexity and diversity of voters’ priorities. We believe that electoral systems and rules should best represent all of its citizens’ preferences, not just their top choice candidate.
Therefore, we advocate for a Voters Choose voting system on the following grounds:
- Voters’ preferences often extend beyond one candidate, party, or association, and;
- Candidates should be elected by broad consensus and support from a constituency, not just from pockets of the population, and;
- Officeholders should be called to perform to the best of their abilities, and should only have an incumbency benefit when they perform well in office and earn broad support.
Any U.S. citizen or U.S. resident can collaborate with or aid the general operations of Voters Choose, so long as they willingly agree to the organization’s mission or purpose. All we ask of our members is that they contribute what they can to our goals (ex. funds, energy, social media space, resources, information, ideas, etc) and, if eligible, that they register to vote.
