Democracy Forum — The Two-party System and the Future of Our Democracy

WERU 89.9 FM
Blue Hill, ME
Sunday, October 3, 2021
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

LWV-Downeast hosts a monthly radio program on democracy in cooperation with WERU FM. This month, we'll talk about the history and the future of the two major parties, how parties change and evolve, how/why they splinter. Are the parties too strong or too weak? Are the two major parties in this moment so polarized that the system itself is undermined? Has the modern two-party system made us ungovernable? What reforms and options might be realistic? -- multi-member districts, proportional representation, ranked choice voting?
