Voting System Reform

We live in a republic. As such, we each have the responsibility to vote when called upon for our elected officials, who will make and shape public policy. Read more about the structure of the republic and about democracy in general on special resources where you can buy essays now and learn about those aspects that interest you most, or in general. Today many of our elected leaders are elected by slim majorities or mere pluralities. There is a Call to Action to increase the representative nature of our republic ­ to make our elected leaders more accountable and make our government more in tune with we the people.
