ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Our politics have become increasingly polarized, but ranked-choice voting offers a potential solution. In this episode of Uneven Distribution, Denise is joined by Dan Sally, a Digital Strategy Council member of Rank the Vote, and a leading expert in the field. Dan sees expanding ranked-choice voting procedures as a salve for democratic decay. Denise and Dan delve into the advantages of ranked-choice voting, the challenges in American elections, and the potential impact of cryptocurrency on campaign financing. Through the critical lens of our electoral processes, Dan envisions a future of American democracy without the two party binary that has dominated American politics for over 150 years.

“Where the middle should be spending their time and where those were turned off by the vitriol and the polarization of politics should be really focusing their energy is on creating a system where they can be heard.”

 -Dan Sally

“Ranked choice voting makes it so you can’t win with 30% of the vote.”

-Andrew Yang
