In November, 2022, Portland made history as the first large municipality in the United States to adopt proportional ranked choice voting and multimember districts in the modern era. Portland is now in the midst of the redistricting process—creating four districts, each of which will elect three council members.

Join us for a roundtable conversation about Portland election reforms and the redistricting process. We will be joined by two political science experts in elections, voting, and redistricting.

Dr. Melody Valdini is professor of political science at Portland State University and was recently selected as one of the members of the Portland Independent District Commission.

Dr. Todd Donovan is professor of political science at Western Washington University and is a nationally known expert on ranked choice voting. Dr. Donovan is also an elected county commissioner in Whatcom County, WA.

The conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Paul Gronke, professor of political science at Reed College and Director of the Elections & Voting Information Center.

We encourage students, staff, faculty, and other community members to join us for a lively discussion about the theory and practice of election reform. Open to the public.
