Please don't delete this – it isn't spam. I'm just posting here because I thought it's something that would be of interest to the members of the group, since you're all interested in electoral reform.
FairVote, the nation's leading organization working to transform elections in the United States, recently launched its Upgrade Democracy video contest to engage people with its issues and highlight just how popular they are with the general public. The contest asks participants to submit a short video to YouTube answering the question 'If you could change anything you wanted about elections, what would our democracy look like?'. First prize is $2000 and a trip to DC, and our panel of celebrity judges includes The Daily Show's Dan Bakkedahl, politico Donna Brazile and filmmaker Richard Linklater (of such classics as Dazed and Confused and Before Sunrise).
