Important issues

I've taken a couple of these polls recently where they ask you what issues are important to you.  These polls have been on progressive websites.  I've been short of shocked that they don't mention reform of election law -- given the nightmare we've been through recently.  Here are some possible points


  • elimination of plurality take all voting (12 of 13 swing states in 2016 had no majority winner); 
  • recall elections for federal office (by direct majority vote -- since it's unlikely that small states will agree to eliminate the electoral college for the initial election, but several states have recall elections); 
  • requirement that federal candidates reveal 1040; 
  • candidates receiving political contributions from businesses should be precluded from voting on legislation affecting those businesses; 
  • statutory rubric for invalidating elections where there is substantial foreign interference; 
  • return to paper ballots that are manually counted
