Survey: Queens voters felt good about ranked-choice voting
As New York City prepares for the June primaries, the city’s first major elections that will use ranked-choice voting, a series of special elections are acting almost as a testing ground for the new voting system. Now, new exit polling from this year’s two City Council special elections in Queens appears to indicate that voters are adapting well to the system, and that educational outreach seems to be working.
New York City to Launch $15 Million Ranked Choice Voting Education Campaign
Mayor Bill de Blasio and DemocracyNYC today announced an unprecedented $15 million voter education campaign to inform New Yorkers on the new Ranked Choice Voting system ahead of June’s Primary Elections. This effort will include an advertising campaign, investments in language access and accessibility resources, and direct outreach partnerships with community groups, faith-based organizations, Minority and Women-Owned Businesses (MWBEs), and other stakeholders.
Ranked-choice voting is already changing politics for the better
If you’ve been following New York City’s mayoral race, you might have noticed an unusual trend. Candidates have openly discussed their personal second choices. Activist groups have issued joint endorsements of competing candidates. Some of these competing candidates have even appeared together at shared promotional events.
