Abstract

In recent decades, Britain has evolved into a multi-party system, but it still has an electoral system designed for only two parties. From an American perspective, David Schleicher argues that if the UK decides not to reform its electoral system, it should enact laws to encourage US-style party primaries and pass rules that discourage the development of multiple parties.
