Balanced Voting

Series Created By Paul Cohen (47 articles.) (View How Many People Read This)

Politics in America has always been dominated by two major parties and often several others that are widely understood to not have a chance of taking power.  Is there some way to change this?

Articles in this series discuss several other ways we might vote that would encourage there to be a wider range of choices for voters.  The basic notion is that voters should be permitted to vote against any candidate just as they can vote for any candidate.  Several approaches to allowing this are discussed in different articles. 

Balanced voting (which is a term that unfortunately has been adopted, mostly in Europe with a completely different meaning) quite directly takes into account opposition to a candidate as well as support. This will often remove the advantage that celebrity candidates have.
