LISTEN: Why Ranked Choice Voting Could Save Us

Sounds Good with Branden Harvey

Katherine Gehl says reforming our voting system is the solution to political division and gridlock. Our current political system makes polarization and incivility commonplace and compromise nearly impossible, but ranked choice voting promises to make efficient cooperation possible. Katherine founded Democracy Found and The Institute for Political Innovation, organizations that work to catalyze political change in America.

In the first half of this episode, Katherine describes how increased political competition and changing our voting system can make politics better, and in the second half she offers simple steps we can take to make a better election system a reality.

Guest: Katherine Gehl, co-founder of Democracy Found, founder of The Institute for Political Innovation, and co-author of “The Politics Industry: How Political Innovation Can Break Partisan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy”
