What's Happening in Electoral Reform
in a Time of Realignment?

California's 3.4 million independent voters on an equal footing with party members. Californians sent a message that they are tired of partisan gridlock and dysfunction and want a system where all voters participate in electing representatives who put what's best for their city, state and country first. Most Americans agree with them. Here in New York City, a Charter Revision Commission is considering whether to place a similar measure before the voters. Please come meet Harry Kresky, for a discussion of the electoral reform battle of the 21st century - the Parties versus the People. 


Harry Kresky is a graduate of Columbia Law School where he served as an editor of the Columbia Law Review.  He is one of the country's leading election attorneys. Harry Kresky was appointed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to serve on the 2002 New York City Charter Commission. He is the Chair of the Election Law Committee of the New York County Lawyers Association, and also chaired the Ballot Access Subcommittee of the Election Law Committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. Kresky has written extensively on election reform issues. He has represented independent voters, candidates and parties for the past 30 years as well as insurgents seeking ballot access in major party primaries. He serves as counsel to the IndependnetVoting.org and the New York City Independence Party.
