Plurality voting in single-member-districts has always prevented the Green Party as well as women and people of color from getting their fair and proportional share of representation. This problem has become worse in recent years because the Republicans have become not merely a conservative party but an extremist racist far-right party. Progressive voters feel compelled more than ever to vote for centrist Democrats instead of progressive Greens in order to stop reactionary Republicans. In addition, states have been increasing ballot access requirements and suppressing voting rights. At the federal level, the proposed For the People Act (HR1/S1) proposed to increase by five times the fundraising threshold to quality for public matching funds. This workshop will discuss remedies to these problems, including proportional representation through ranked-choice voting in multi-member districts, voting rights, fair ballot access, and public campaign funding.

Presented at the 2021 Green Party Annual National Meeting on July 16, 2021.
