Americans must pay taxes and serve on juries. So what if they were asked — or required — to vote?
That’s the question Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne Jr. and Miles Rapoport, Executive Director of 100% Democracy and Harvard Kennedy School Fellow, are asking in their book, “100% Democracy: The Case for Universal Voting.”
Issue One is hosting a conversation with the authors about their paradigm-shifting argument that all members of a democracy must participate in elections.
Issue One’s Chief of Strategy and Program Ethan Rome will speak with the authors about why they chose universal voting as a fundamental reform to promote and how we can improve our democracy.
Note: While this issue doesn’t represent our organization’s stance, this conversation is part of our ongoing efforts to lift up interesting ideas and thinkers within the broader democracy reform community.
