We are a nonpartisan coalition of Californians who believe that all citizens deserve equal and satisfactory representation in government. We are working to change California's voting methods to realize this vision.

For over 20 years, CfER has led the drive for ranked choice voting for single winner elections (e.g., mayor) and methods of proportional representation for multi-winner elections (e.g., city council).

Quote of the day "[My Personal Representation bill] would be a healing, a reconciling measure; softening all political transitions; securing that every opinion, instead of conquering or being conquered by starts and shocks, and passing suddenly from having no power at all in Parliament to having too much, or the contrary, should wax or wane in political power in exact proportion to its growth or decline in the general mind of the country." - John Stuart Mill, in the House of Commons
