President, FairVote Action
Rob Richie has directed FairVote since 1992 and FairVote Action since 1999. He has played a key role in advancing, winning and implementing electoral reforms at a local and state level, including ranked choice voting in more than a dozen cities, cumulative voting in Voting Rights Act cases, the National Popular Vote plan in 11 states and voter access proposals like voter preregistration and a lower voting age. He is a frequent media source, and his writings have appeared in major national publications and ten books, including as co-author of Every Vote Equal about Electoral College reform and Whose Votes Count about fair representation voting.
Katherine M. Gehl, a business leader and former CEO with experience in government, began, in the last decade, to participate actively in politics—first in traditional partisan politics.
Truly nonpartisan reform is difficult. Our members have passed major reforms like Colorado’s more open primary, Maine’s statewide ranked choice voting initiative, and California’s top-two nonpartisan primary system.
Being a NANR member gives you access to this trusted network of experienced partners, advisors, vendors, and other resources to make sure you have all the tools to advance nonpartisan reform.
