The Fair Representation Act is a proposed Federal Statute to change Elections for Members of Congress. Beginning in 2022, House Members would be Elected by Ranked-Choice Voting (RCV) in Primary and General Elections. Members would be Elected in Multi-Winner Districts of up to Five Seats in States with more than One Seat, with Districts being Drawn by Independent Redistricting Commissions.

The Bill consists of Four Core Components:

1. Ranked-Choice Voting for Primaries and the General Election

2. Multi-Winner Districts in States with More Than 1 Seat

3. Drawing Districts with Independent Redistricting Commissions

4. Fair Representation Voting Rule Instead of Winner-Take-All Voting Rule
