What is "Full Representation"?
Full Representation is a more fair means of carrying out Congressional
elections. A 1967 law mandates single-seat Congressional districts, restraining the vast majority of Congressional elections from
being competitive. Full representation (sometimes called
proportional representation) is more fair. Adjacent congressional districts are joined to form a multi-member superdistrict.
Gerrymandering district lines is impossible because there are no lines! See the following page for a sample ballot to see how voters can rank candidates for office according to their priorities. The key is that a particular block
of voters can vote a candidate into office now with only 20% of the overall vote (in the case of a 5-member
superdistrict) rather than 50%. Because of the proportional nature of voting power, neither the minority nor the majority
in a district is left out of representation--hence the name "Full Representation". Furthermore, because third parties
are no longer "spoilers" as they commonly become in single-member districts, there is also an opening for third-party candidates
to occasionally emerge, providing healthy, quintessentially American-style competition and free speech to the political process.
Representation is based on what you think rather than where you live.
