Building a Better Democracy

I want to take a few minutes this morning to share something I found about At-Large voting. This is a FAQ about At-Large voting provided by the NAACP. I think it applies to everyone who is interested in ensuring that the City Council we elect is fair and representative of the people living in the community.

Please take a look at it. In Raleigh, more than one-third of a our City Council is elected At-Large. This includes the Mayor and two At-Large Council members. Are we getting the diversity we need on Council with the current system? Perhaps we should consider moving to all District Council members.
