Voters in cities and states across the country are turning to ranked choice voting to give themselves - and future generations - better options. That’s what Alexis W. of Maine shared with us.

We must free ourselves from geographic boundaries and go to the real meaning of one-person, one-vote with the National Popular Vote plan for president and fair voting for Congress.Read More
