the long road to approval voting

early in 2010, i encountered Aaron Hamlin on a comment thread about alternative voting methods. later that year, we began the 501(c)3 incorporation process for the center for election science.

it wasn’t until 8 1/2 years later that fargo became the first u.s. city to adopt approval voting. electoral reform is glacial, but i believe that approval voting will become an overnight success within a few years.
