We are a nonpartisan coalition of Californians who believe that all citizens deserve equal and satisfactory representation in government. We are working to change California's voting methods to realize this vision.

For over 20 years, CfER has led the drive for ranked choice voting for single winner elections (e.g., mayor) and methods of proportional representation for multi-winner elections (e.g., city council).
