What's happening?

New York City activists and elected officials joined together to call on the Mayoral Charter Revision Commission to implement instant runoff voting (IRV), also known as ranked choice voting. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced during his annual State of the City that the Mayoral Charter Revision Commission would be focusing on campaign finance reform, as well as voting reform, and held its first meeting last week. The commission has the power to include IRV as a charter amendment on the November ballot.
