Election method: one of the most fundamental issues

The election method used in our public elections is one of the most fundamental issues of our society and affect the very nature of our democracies.

Taking concrete steps

Since this poll is about taking concrete steps, I didn't wait for the few members to express themselves and went ahead to create the beginning of a directory here: http://minguo.info/usa/node/47 .

You can discuss here how to organize the directory, what information to add.
If you are interested, I can grant you the rights to add pages to the handbook yourself, and edit existing ones.
