Ranked Choice Voting
What is Ranked Choice Voting?
How to Rank Abigail #1!
What is Ranked Choice Voting? In 2019, 74% of New York voters voted to adopt Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) for city elections in 2021. RCV allows voters to rank candidates in preferential order. If you have a favorite candidate and you think other candidates would do a good job as well, you can vote for them according to your chosen order of preference. If no candidate receives a majority of first-place votes when polls close, then the second-place votes of the lowest-
ranking candidate will be added to the total votes of the remaining candidates. If no candidate has received a majority of votes at this point, then the second (or third place) votes of the candidate with the least number of votes are added to the totals.
Watch how it works below!
Why Ranked Choice Voting?
Ranked Choice Voting pushes candidates to seek the support of voters from different communities, gives voters greater choice, and reduces costs. This process has shown a reduction in negative campaign practices in the cities where it has been implemented, which invites everyone to participate in a much more inclusive process.
