Both hours of Michael Krasny's Forum program on KQED radio this morning discussed proportional representation and instant runoff voting. The shows can be heard here.
Apparently, instant runoff voting will b eused in the upcoming election.
The Greens presidential candidate was on the first hour and was advocating that people throw away their votes by voting for the Green party candidates and somehow that will change the system. That's just silly.
However, I absolutely do believe that the Green party should be have their fair proportion of the representation. We need a ballot initiative. I would gladly get involved with such an effort.
