Local organizations for approval voting

From electowiki

This page was created in 2006 in hopes of assembling a list of organizations interested specifically in the adoption of approval voting. As of 2020-03-31, this list is outdated.

United States of America


In 2006, a national organization exists called Citizens for Approval Voting, <http://www.approvalvoting.org>. They had an active discussion group on Yahoo, which was available at <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ApprovalVoting/>. Since Yahoo groups isn't a thing, that list has moved. approvalvoting.org now redirects to the website for The Center for Election Science .
