Strategy Meeting, Sunday, Jan 10, 7PM Online

Meet great people. Learn new skills. Empower voters. Make a difference in our country’s future. Join us at our statewide membership meeting, where we will build the strategy to pass Ranked Choice Voting in New York in 2021.

In 2016 Maine became the first state to reform their elections by adopting Ranked Choice Voting. Then, America’s largest city — New York City — passed Ranked Choice Voting by a whopping 74% of the vote. In 2020 Alaska became the second state to pass RCV statewide. Five states used RCV for the 2020 presidential primaries or caucuses.

Please attend to discuss the general strategy for adopting RCV in all of New York state with action team break-out sessions for: 1. Live Outreach 
& Volunteer On-boarding
 2. Fundraising 3. Endorsements 4.

NYC adopts RCV

On Tuesday New York City voters said they want Ranked Choice Voting. Now they will have it in city primary elections.

Let’s roll with the momentum. This is a great step toward RCV statewide and for general elections.

To celebrate this week share the big apple “I love RCV” logo.

Keep ranking,

Tori Alexander & Dave Heller
