There are several ways to organize the paper, and you are free to organize it the way you wish as

long as it is coherent.

Here is one brief example of how to organize this type of paper:

Paragraph 1: Introduction: a brief summary of the flaws in the current electoral system, a

summary of the reform, its purpose, and how it will improve current election/voting


Paragraph 2: A description of how the current system functions. Evidence that the current system

distorts, misrepresents, and/or under-represents election outcomes and/or the

votes and political views of the people.

Paragraph 3: A detailed description of the reform and evidence of how it will change current

election/voting practices. A description of the arguments and views of those

supporting the reform.

Paragraph 4: (a) A description of the arguments and views of those opposing the reform.

(b) Your critical analysis of both sides of the debate and of the evidence presented.

Here you may point out the inconsistencies in the different sides of the debate,

points that have not been raised, or ways to view the reform that have not been

discussed, among other things.

Paragraph 5: A summary of the arguments and evidence you have presented, and your view of

the proposed reform based upon the evidence and your analysis.
