Last year, you helped us empower voters in Fargo with approval voting. This year, we’re super excited to announce that we’ll be supporting another approval voting ballot initiative in St. Louis, Missouri! St. Louis has seen elections rife with vote splitting, and their residents are ready for something better. With a population of over 300,000, St. Louis will truly put approval voting on the map! Alongside our local partner, St. Louis Approves, we’ll be running an education campaign to make sure the public understands what approval voting is and how it can empower them.
We can’t wait to help bring approval voting to a major US city, but to do so, we need your help! For every $5 you donate, we can educate 20 St. Louisans about the benefits of approval voting. And that’s the key to victory. What we learned last fall in Fargo is that people aren’t against approval voting; they just don’t know what it is. Can you help us reach more St. Louisans?
Last month, we had the pleasure of spreading the word about approval voting to lots of interested folks in Seattle, including the League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County, the Seattle Effective Altruists, and the Seattle Green Party. A special thank you to our amazing supporter Tim Swast who organized a CES presentation at Google!
We couldn’t do this without your support, so thank you for enabling us to educate people about better voting methods—one city at a time.
On that note, we’ll be visiting several cities across the US in the coming months, and we want to meet with you while we’re there!
