This report investigates the likely consequences of Final-Five Voting (FFV) for constituents, voters, political organizations, and candidates from underrepresented minority groups, which we refer to as communities of color. We explore how FFV impacts the participation among, representation of, and government performance of these communities relative to non-Hispanic whites. We consider these questions in the context of FFV in congressional elections because the interest in implementing the reform is focused at that level.
