Honestly, to me the biggest problems with municipal elections is informational, not procedural. I mean obviously I support the usual gamut of electoral reforms like Instant-Runoff or Approval voting... but mostly, the problem is that voters aren't bombarded with information about their candidate. Even the mayoral candidate.

We get the drum-beat of "throw the bums out" from talk radio, but the city councilmen themselves are hardly ever even referred by name.

If you don't follow municipal politics and you don't get that beat-feet-meeting with the candidate? You might miss the municipal election altogether.

That's the big challenge, imho.
