I am trying to acces to resources for the readings in unit 2.5 but the links don’t work. Can someone point me to where i can find the articles?

2.5.1 Two-Party vs. Multiparty Systems

Reading: Duke University: "The US System: Winner-Take-All” (HTML)

Instructions: Please click on the link above and read this webpage. In weighing the pros and cons of the United States’ electoral system, do you believe that it is a system that needs to be reformed or changed? Why or why not?

Reading: Arend Lijphart’s "PR vs. Single-Member Districts in States” (HTML)

Instructions: Please click on the link above and read this testimony. This assignment gives you more than just an argument in favor or proportional representation; it shows you typical legislative testimony, and it is presented by one of the most well respected American political theorists of our times, Arend Lijphart. How convincing is Lijphart’s argument?
