Hi <<First Name>>!
Last month we talked about whether awards shows were even meaningful. We were so sorry to let you down.
This month we went to Liberty Forum in New Hampshire, New Hampshire is interesting in that it has 400 seats for its state House, large for any state, but especially for the small state of New Hampshire. New Hampshire is also home to the Free State Project, a libertarian movement. And, like all independents and third parties, libertarians stand to benefit a lot from approval voting.
We had a good time talking to local libertarians and state reps. Note that New Hampshire also introduced a bill on approval voting back in 2011. Might there be another approval voting bill this year? Maybe!
While we were there, we greeted many libertarian folks and gave a talk on how approval voting is beneficial to them in particular. (Note that the Libertarian Party is the third largest party in the country.) Plus we got to sit down with local podcasters Darryl Perry (author of Duopoly listed in our books page) and Ian Freeman at Free Talk Live (see at 12:30 - 18:40).
To really set the tone this month that our choose-one plurality voting method needs to go, we decided to do a top-five list. Enjoy!: The Top Five Ways Plurality Voting Fails.
