Krist Novoselic is a musician who was a member of the groundbreaking rock band Nirvana. He also is an author (Of Grunge and Government) and a political activist in Washington State. Krist joined FairVote's Board in 2005 and was elected chair in 2008. He is in town to promote FairVote's programs to revamp congressional elections (highlighted by its twin reports Fair Voting 2012 and Monopoly Politics 2012), to promote the right to vote, to establish a national popular vote for president and to accommodate voter choice. He and Rob will appear on CSPAN's Washington Journal Thursday morning, meet with the Washington Post editorial board, hold a news conference and have individual meetings.
Our gathering takes place amid a 2012 election cycle that underscores all that is wrong with our politics: no-choice elections in most of the country, hyper-partisanship and attacks on voting rights. FairVote's remarkable group of democracy fellows will be on hand to answer your questions and present our analysis and action plan for solving the challenges of American democracy.
The event is complementary, although FairVote welcomes and depends on donations. We ask that you RSVP by noon on Thursday, October 25.
