RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I have been intrigued by fusion voting since first reading about it in Noam Chomsky's "Understanding Power". As a result, I volunteered for the Oregon Working Families Party as soon as I found out the party had formed.
I hope this bill is signed into law because I believe it's good for everyone. Empowering minor parties to support the candidates of major parties will make minor parties less inconsequential and hopefully make the winning candidates feel responsible to the concerns of the parties providing them with endorsement.
I only wish that this bill was introducing full fusion voting, but one small step in the right direction is very welcome.
