A member of the groundbreaking rock band Nirvana, Krist Novoselic, along with bandmates Kurt Cobain and David Grohl, changed the course of music history when they snapped up Billboard Magazine's number one spot with their much-acclaimed album Nevermind. In doing so, Nirvana opened the doors for a flood of a new generation of bands. After Nirvana, Novoselic went on to become one of rock's most politically-minded musicians. Krist has also committed himself to numerous different community projects and has become an influential part of the Northwest political scene. Krist joined FairVote's Board in 2005 and was elected chair in 2008.
