  • Political Competition Hits Historic Low: Part One
    Political Competition Hits Historic Low: Part One The Anti-Competitive Impact of Winner-Take-All Voting and Partisan Redistricting Democracy cannot be just defined by the right to vote. Voters must also be offered meaningful choices between candidates and a genuine degree of electoral competition. Outside of a few battleground states, competition was hard to find in 2016.

    The Alt-Right remains probably the least-understood political phenomenon in the United States right now. There is very little consensus about what those in it stand for, who is in it besides a few celebrities and internet trolls, how many they are, and how powerful they are.I decided to do some research.

  • Citizens’ statement on Massachusetts marijuana ballot question was effective, but little known
    From MassLive: Massachusetts voters who read an independently produced statement about the marijuana legalization ballot question felt better informed about the issue and more confident in their knowledge. But it is likely that few residents were even aware of the so-called “Citizens’ Statement.” Organizers of the Citizens Initiative Review pilot project, which produced the statement, are now pushing for legislation that would make the citizens’ review process a permanent feature of Massachusetts elections and would include the statement in the official state voter guide.
