Daily Source Bias Check: FairVote

leftcenter09LEFT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias.  They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes.  These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: FairVote (formerly the Center for Voting and Democracy) is a 501(c)(3) organization that advocates electoral reform in the United States. FairVote advocates the use of Ranked choice voting (RCV), in elections. Under this system, voters rank candidates in order of preference, in contrast to the more widely used plurality voting system.  FairVote also wants to abolish the electoral college. All information is well sourced and uses neutral wording. We rate this source left-center primarily because more liberal organizations endorse this voting system.
