Systems Level Failure? Veterans for All Voters Takes on Polarizing Elections

From Fluent Knowledge | Part of the The Purple Principle Podcast series | 26:51


“Every time I talk to someone about running for office, the first thing they say is, Eric, you have to pick a team,” confides Navy veteran Eric Bronner. Our featured guest this episode, Eric is COO of the non-partisan group Veterans for All Voters. 

“And something didn't sit right with me. So the pump was primed, as my parents would say, for some kind of awakening.”

That awakening occurred while listening to a Freakonomics podcast episode with former Purple Principle  guest Katherine Gehl, co-author of The Politics Industry. In that episode, as in our own 2021 interview, Gehl and co-author Michael Porter of HBS highlighted the lack of incentives our elected officials have to govern effectively.  

“That research was so compelling,” Bronner tells us, waving a copy of The Politics Industry from his home office desk. “And the smart people are waking up to the fact that it’s a system level problem.”

To tackle that  problem, Eric and his co-founders are forming a nationwide network of veterans to volunteer on behalf of state level election reform initiatives like opening primaries to the large percentage of registered independent or unaffiliated veterans currently unable to vote in primary elections and also advancing Final Four or Five voting as detailed in The Politics Industry. This voting system combines a unified open primary with a ranked choice general election in an effort to create more voter engagement and more truly competitive elections. 

On this episode we meet three volunteer veterans, including former Marine Mike Escobar who voiced  a 2022 commercial promoting these electoral reforms in Nevada,   fellow Marine vet Glomani Perez of New York and Army combat vet Crystal Wellington of Florida. Each of them recall feeling a disturbing lack of national cohesion upon return to civilian life. 

“The last thing we need is more polarization. The last thing we need is more partisanship,” says Bronner who now works full time coordinating  hundreds of volunteers in forty states and counting. “We can have differences of opinion, right? But the system itself is broken.”

Tune in to find out how Bronner and Veterans For All Voters hope to mend the system in this 2024 election cycle and beyond. The Purple Principle is Fluent Knowledge production. Original music by Ryan Adair Rooney.
