Summary
"Recent U.S. elections have defied nationwide majority preference at the White House, Senate, and House level. This work if interdisciplinary scholarship explains how "winner-take-all" and single-member district elections make this happen, and what can be done to repair the system. Proposed reforms include the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (presidential elections); eliminating the Senate filibuster; and proportional representation using Ranked Choice Voting for House, state, and local elections. This timely analysis of election law and politics outlining key structural election reforms combines distinct analysis of presidential, Senate, and U.S. House elections, while also addressing reforms at the state and local government level. The author argues for fundamental structural change to U.S. elections like Proportional Representation and Ranked Choice Voting, without requiring any constitutional amendments. Analysis of recent political developments such as progress on the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, the adoption of Ranked Choice Voting state-wide in Maine, and the 2018 Supreme Court gerrymandering cases add real-world relevance and applicability" --
