Citizens in a democracy often call for more choice during elections. Open-list voting allows citizens to vote for an individual candidate rather than just a political party. Using a particularly radical form of open voting, citizens in Ecuador, El Salvador, and Honduras now face the nearly impossible task of voting for up to 24 different candidates for congress.
Join us for a discussion with a panel of experts sharing surprising new research and experience from the field about the advantages and limits of open electoral systems.
Networking reception to follow.
