Who We Are
Better Ballot North Carolina is a politically, regionally and socially diverse non-partisan non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to educating the NC public about Ranked Choice Voting (RCV). Our mission empowers North Carolinians with knowledge of electoral reforms that bring fairer elections by encouraging greater candidate and voter participation, ensuring office holders win a true majority of voter support, and better reflecting the will of North Carolina’s voters.
Founded in July 2020, Better Ballot North Carolina is united in the belief that Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) is a simple, positive election reform that gives voters more of a voice.
We advocate for the adoption of RCV at local, county, and state levels and work to educate North Carolina voters about RCV’s benefits. We invite the support of all citizens, whether they belong to a political party or are unaffiliated. We believe that when voters are able to rank the candidates on the ballot in their order of preference, their voice remains in the race until a true majority winner emerges with more than 50% of the vote. As a result, all voters will be empowered and our democracy will be more effective.
The RCV movement has been growing stronger in states across the country, including North and South Carolina. Voters are seeing that RCV is easy, more representative, and more cost-effective, as it saves money for counties and states by eliminating the need for expensive and time-consuming runoff elections. We envision a better future for North Carolina and believe that RCV will be a foundational step in that direction.
To achieve these goals, we (the many volunteers of Better Ballot North Carolina) work together across several functional teams. Click here to learn more!
To bring Ranked Choice Voting to North Carolina, we need to show our legislators that RCV has wide public support.
