Voting reform in 2004

This is an excellent article on Concordet voting and how it can be used to make our elections fairer. Previously, I had endorsed IRV... however this article explains why I was wrong. It takes a while to get it.... but it's accurate. IRV has serious problems that result in the same issues we have today... a bipartisan system. Concordet, however, has none of these problems, and allows more than 2 parties to exist without ever taking votes away from each other. In fact, the simplistic approval voting system is far easier than IRV to implement, and is superior to it.


Approval voting is so easy, in fact, that you could probably get it done in time for 2004.
