Add your name to the list of Americans who support ranked choice voting.
It's time for our local, state, and national leaders to know that support is growing for common sense electoral reforms that empower voters and improve democracy.
Ranked choice voting is a way to ensure elections are fair for all voters. It allows voters the option to rank candidates in order of preference: one, two, three, and so forth.
If your vote cannot help your top choice win, your vote counts for your next choice.
In races where voters select one winner, if a candidate receives more than half of the first choices, that candidate wins, just like in any other election. However, if there is no majority winner after counting first choices, the race is decided by an "instant runoff." The candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated, and voters who picked that candidate as ‘number 1’ will have their votes count for their next choice. This process continues until there’s a majority winner or a candidate won with more than half of the vote.
We need it at the local and state levels, and we saw this year that it's clearly needed in our presidential elections.
I support ranked choice voting in U.S. elections.
