Adam Friedman, founder of Voter Choice Massachusetts and John Severini, Information Technology Professional / Entrepreneur

Polling Data shows most Americans are moderate, our current plurality system is unhealthy, unsustainable, and divides us as a nation. 3rd party candidates don’t have a voice, and often play the spoiler candidate. This is not Democracy. RCV fixes both!
