What is RCV?

Ranked Choice Voting fixes our broken election system by giving voters more power and more choices. Elections now are dominated by negative campaigning, Big Money and wealthy special interests. Too many people are shut out from participating in a government that doesn’t look like them and doesn’t represent them.

RCV is as easy as 1-2-3. Voters rank candidates in order of preference instead of voting for just one candidate.

Why RCV?

RCV brings more voices into our elections and greater diversity to government. It increases voter participation, encourages coalition-building and rewards positive campaigning.

RCV improves our elections. Voters get to vote honestly and express their true preferences. RCV solves the "spoiler" issue and means that no vote will ever be a "wasted" vote.

Ranked Choice Voting elects candidates with the broadest possible public support.
