Yet these are the same issues that cause the most gridlock in our political system. And according to a 2015 study by Princeton University, the average American voter has a “near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” So how do we elect officials that better reflect the will of most Americans? You might be thinking that we need to change the redistricting process to address gerrymandering. Or maybe you think we need to get money out of politics and address campaign finance reform. These are hot topics among activists who want to reform our democracy.
