Welcome to the Center for Range Voting. We are a non-partisan organization with a mission to educate the public, lobby for the adoption, and assist those wishing to make use of Range Voting - also known as Score Voting - a system where election candidates are given a rating across the range of possible scores, with the winner being the highest averaging score. This system, like most alternative ways to vote, is wildly superior to the current "plurality" system used in places such as the USA.
This wiki is under construction. Don't worry, the real home page won't look like this. In fact, this project has the following initial goals:
- Transferring all material from the aging rangevoting.org site
- Categorizing, reorganizing and reformatting that content
- Adding a semantic structure to link related topics in useful ways
- Adding new content, with the help of the greater online community
- Becoming the go-to resource for all things election science.
When ready, this wiki will hopefully be accessible from domain names such as;
- range.vote (new TLD!)
- rangevote.wiki (new TLD!)
- rangevoting.org (the original, of course)
- rangevote.com (we need to get hold of this guy)
This is a big project, and a collaboration, or even partnership, with Electology.org (Center for Election Science) may be in order. They have somewhat more resources as an organization (at the moment) and an established modern site, but the amount and quality of information available there is minuscule compared to what we hope to accomplish, and lacks the collaborative tools of a wiki. Unlike FairVote, the Center for Election Science has an informed stance on range Voting. Perhaps we can combine forces, for the good of democracy.
In the mean time, articles will continue to be imported here (name TBD) as the project picks up steam.
