Proportional Representation in Minnesota Elections

Ken Pentel will make the case that the single-member winner-take-all voting system in the United States is leading to increased volatility, and that Proportional Representation can help remedy this by reflecting the political will of the society more accurately and sharing political power more widely.

For 33 years Ken has been a grassroots organizer and candidate for public office in Minnesota. In 2008 he left the Green Party to invent the nonpartisan Ecology Democracy Network.One of the projects that emerged was the new Ecology Democracy Party in May of 2010. As of November 2019 Ken continues to develop the projects of the Ecology Democracy Network.
