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.
Tori Alexander & Dave Heller
New York City residents will have the opportunity to vote for RCV in local primary elections. Spread the word. When RCV passes in NYC, the whole state is halfway there. See Common Cause NY for more info.
