The Experience

Through this project, I ask the question: How might lawmakers change the mechanics of voting policies to more closely reflect the ideals of American voters?

This narrative takes place in an online chatroom, but you won't be chatting with people. These characters represent conceptual voting systems.

As well as First Past The Post (the system the U.S. currently adopts), you'll get to develop a relationship with the Approval voting system and that of Ranked Choice.

Test the limits of these new friends; what stimulates them and how could you anger them?

Near the end, reflect on your relationships and ask yourself which you'd rather interact with the most.

You will gain substantial knowledge of the voting system the average American voter interacts with at least once every four years, as well as additional resources for how to help change it for the better.
