At its biennial national convention on July 5, 2002, the nation's third largest political party voted to amend its platform to support Instant Runoff Voting in single-winner elections and proportional representation for legislative elections. The text of that amendment is as follows.
"Electoral systems matter. The predominant use of 'winner-take-all' elections in gerrymandered, single-member districts fosters political monopolies and creates a substantial government-imposed barrier to election of non-incumbent political parties and candidates. We propose electoral systems that are more representative of the electorate at the federal, state, and local levels, such as proportional voting systems with multi-member districts for legislative elections and instant runoff voting (IRV) for single winner elections."http://www.lp.org/issues/platform/eleclaws.html
