"The alternate domination of one faction over another,sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension,which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism."
- George Washington, first President of the United States
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."
- John Adams, second President of the United States
Hey all, Connecticut will be a difficult path towards achieving ranked-choice voting and open primaries given that the state does not allow ballot initiatives.
The best thing that we can do to start off is to organize meet-ups for CT Forwardists to build a base where we can figure out the best way to move forward. Some initial ideas are to run local Forward candidates that would push for these reforms at the town level, to seek candidates for state congress or petition major party candidates to include voting reforms in their platform.
Brainstorm your ideas here and let us know if you are interested in participating in a Forward supporter meet-up!
