French presidential elections, 2017

10 days from now, I will vote in the first round of the presidential election, and I have spend a lot of time watching debates and getting informed on the candidates.

There is so much to write about in this election. Unfortunately for you, most of my time will be spent on writing about it in French, so that I can share with my family.

However, should you be interested, or if you have comments or questions on the French elections (plural, because we have two rounds), you can use the comment section below.

Electoral reform in Washington State

In Washington State, currently only one activist group is known.

In 2005 and 2006, they were rallying behind State Representative Nixon to promote Condorcet , a.k.a IIRV, for the state legislature.

Here is a quote for the group's homepage:

Our vision is to see IRRV (Instant Round Robin Voting, aka Condorcet's method) enacted and used successfully at or above the level of a US state or its foreign equivalent.

Electoral reform in Texas

About Texas, it is only known that Rock Howard, one of the founders of Citizens for Approval Voting used to be active to get the State of Texas to use Approval voting.
