What People are Saying

“Ranked-choice has been praised as a fairer, more democratic alternative to the status quo because it ensures whoever wins has the support of the majority of voters and not just an electoral plurality.”
“A study of 79 elections in 26 American cities found that RCV was associated with a 10% increase in turnout compared with non-RCV primary and runoff elections.”
“The ability to rank all the candidates running for office, rather than voting for only one, is intrinsically more democratic.”
- Larry Diamond, Foreign Policy
“No longer do we have to spend valuable time arguing over spoilers instead of debating the issues.”
- The Portland Press Herald
