Fair Representation
The Problem

Fix Democracy First recognizes that our current first-past-the-post or winner-take-all voting system does not create a truly representative government.

What Fix Democracy First Is Doing

We advocate using alternative voting methods, in particular Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), previously referred to as “instant runoff voting,” is an electoral system that allows voters to rank multiple candidates in order of preference on their ballots.

Success

Fix Democracy First was the original sponsor of FairVote Washington (FVW), whose sole focus is to attain RCV and proportional representation in Washington State through either local or state legislation, or via the ballot. We continue to partner with FVW

Fix Democracy First was the original sponsor of FairVote Washington (FVW), whose sole focus is to attain RCV and proportional representation in Washington State through either local or state legislation, or via the ballot. We continue to partner with FVW to help pass a Local Options bill that would enable jurisdictions in Washington state to adopt alternative voting systems, such as ranked choice voting. We are also supporting ranked choice in WA charter counties, including King, San Juan, Whatcom, and Clark counties.

Fix Democracy First is now a member of Washington for Equitable Representation, whose mission is to ensure fair representation in our elected bodies through ranked choice voting and create a civil democracy that works for all Washington residents.
