America in One Room: Democratic Reform - Results Announced
In June 2023, a national sample of registered voters in the U.S. met virtually for extensive deliberations about how to reform the U.S. political system. In this America in One Room project, a scientific sample selected by NORC at the University of Chicago discussed a host of issues on the Stanford Platform for Online Deliberation. Participants deliberated on issues impacting democracy in the U.S., including the electoral system, the presidential election system, voter access and election administration, campaign finance, Supreme Court reform, and civic education. They also posed questions to balanced panels of policy experts to further inform their discussions. Below please find a press release, the Executive Summary and tables with detailed findings.
Helena, NORC at the University of Chicago, and the Deliberative Democracy Lab at Stanford University organized this project with partial funding from Helena, Thiry-O’Leary Foundation, the Skoll Foundation, and Porticus.
