How to Transform Democracy with Ranked Choice Voting
May 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Maine did something unprecedented last November — they became the first state in U.S. history to upgrade their voting system to Ranked Choice Voting [see http://www.boston.com/news/politics/2016/11/10/maine-became-the-first-state-in-the-country-to-pass-ranked-choice-voting]. Ranked Choice Voting transforms our politics to allow voters to vote in rank order on their ballot. It solves the problem of vote-splitting and spoiler candidates, allows more people to run for office, and reduces negative campaigning. Massachusetts could be the second state to transform their politics with RCV — and we’ll show you how.
