NYC RCV Legislation referred to Elections Committee Jan 14, 2019 Sponsored by Sen Sanders, S1447 Enacts the “NYC instant run-off voting act,” aka Ranked Choice Voting. “This bill improves the current run-off system of elections for New York City offices by eliminating the current costly and low-turnout run-off election system in favor of an “instant runoff,” whereby voters rank candidates by order of preference and the top two vote getters (if none receives an outright majority of votes), instantly move to a second and final round of counting based on the votes cast for them on the ballots of eliminated candidates.” If this NYC RCV bill is passed, that will make getting statewide RCV all that much easier.
