A Roadmap to Reform
Our Annual Reviews of the most promising State and Federal Proposals over the last legislative sessions.
Every year, legislatures across the nation introduced bills that expand access to the polls, improve voter education and increase political participation. Many innovative proposals, from online voter registration to youth civic education programs, show great promise to transform the way our democracy works. The bills featured in this document are not “best practices” or proven successes, but they are a guide for legislators who pride themselves on thinking “outside the box” and developing creative solutions to our most challenging public policy issues. FairVote hopes legislators, activists and citizensacross the country find a use for this review of some of the most promising proposals to come out of the states during the 2008 legislative session.
