Webinars on Protecting Democracy
The ASBN Business for Democracy campaign continues to hold monthly numerous webinars on how to protect democracy via ranked choice voting (RCV) and taking on the political gerrymandering of state legislative and Congressional districts. Many webinars cover the basics of how RCV works; why it is needed; and the successful use of RCV by political parties, Congressional, state, and municipal elections. Webinars also discuss what states with citizen ballot initiatives can do to stop gerrymandering and national efforts to pass a Constitutional amendment to return money in politics issues back to the states.
