We're bringing Ranked Choice Voting to NC!

We're a non-partisan, non-profit, grassroots organization working to bring more representative elections to North Carolina by advocating for Ranked Choice Voting (RCV).

 


There are problems with elections in NC.

In NC, winning in a primary requires only 30% of the votes. If no candidate earns 30%, we then must pay for costly run-off elections. In general elections, there is no minimum requirement; the candidate with the most votes wins. In a four-way race, winning would require only 26%, and the more candidates there are, the lower the threshold.

Plus, we often vote against our conscience, fearing a vote for our favorite candidate could advantage our least favorite.  We need a better system!

 


Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) is the solution!

Also known as "Instant Runoff Voting", RCV is a simple upgrade that ensures winners earn true majority support.  Voters have the option of ranking candidates... easy as 1, 2, 3!  See how it works:

 


Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) has many benefits!

1.  It's easy to use!  We rank things all the time.

2.  It ensures true majority winners!  The will of the people prevails.

3.  It saves tax-payer money!  We avoid costly run-off elections.

4.  It gives voters more power!  Your preferences always count.
