We have active teams that are extending our reach across the state and raising the timbers on the foundation we have laid. But we don’t have you! You, and your friends and fellow activists, organizers and organizations, are needed to sustain the momentum of this important effort. Please join us on November 15, and add your support in any of the numerous ways available.
What is RCV?
RCV is revolutionary. It will expand your choices as a voter by letting you rank the candidates on the ballot in the order you prefer them, instead of choosing just one. Ranking your choices liberates you from being forced to vote for the candidate you least like, and instead vote with your heart, with the knowledge that your vote will be counted and that a candidate will win with a majority vote of 51%. Your vote always stays intact, and is never thrown away.
RCV is already in use, and people love it. A few years ago, Maine became the first state to adopt RCV and begin reforming their elections. Then, America's largest city -- New York City -- passed Ranked Choice Voting by a whopping 74% of the vote. Six states are even using RCV for this year's presidential primaries or caucuses. Its value in creating better voting, better candidates and better ballots is clear. Join the leading edge of this critical upgrade to our elections.
Please RSVP. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you Sunday!
