Podcast: How does electoral reform happen?
From Politics in Question:
In this week’s episode of Politics In Question, Jack Santucci joins Lee to discuss electoral reform. Santucci is an assistant teaching professor in the Department of Politics at Drexel University. His research examines American political institutions in comparative and historical perspectives. He is the author of More Parties or No Parties: The Politics of Electoral Reform in America (Oxford University Press, 2022).
What makes an electoral reform successful? How is it sustained? What can Americans learn from the history of efforts to advance proportional voting in the United States? And what mistakes does that history help them to avoid? These are some of the issues Jack and Lee ask in this week’s episode.
