A Plan to Reinvent American Democracy for the 21st Century: Responding to a Nation in Crisis | American Academy of Arts and Sciences

A bipartisan commission issues 31 recommendations to strengthen America’s institutions and civic culture to help a nation in crisis emerge with a stronger democracy.

Among the 31 recommendations in the bipartisan report:

  • Expand the House of Representatives (and therefore the Electoral College) by at least fifty members.
  • Institute universal voting and instant voter registration for all eligible Americans.
  • Establish an expectation of national service by all Americans.
  • Limit Supreme Court justices to 18-year terms.
  • Reduce the influence of big money in politics.
  • Promote electoral reforms to increase representation and decrease hyper-partisanship.
  • Increase resources and resolve for community leadership, civic education and an American culture of shared commitment to constitutional democracy and one another.
