Ranked Choice Voting Yes on 2 Presentation
YES on 2 began as a grassroots-driven movement to build awareness around an improvement to our elections known as Ranked Choice Voting (RCV). RCV helps reduce the issues of vote-splitting and so-called “spoiler” candidates — common problems which often put pressure on candidates to drop out, and which prevent fresh, diverse voices from running for office in the first place.
RCV levels the playing field — giving more choice, and guaranteeing a stronger voice for every voter. It eliminates worries about casting a “wasted” vote, regardless of whether or not your favorite candidate is deemed the most “electable,” or whether they have the biggest bank account, or whether they drop out before election day after you’ve voted early. RCV encourages candidates to run more positive and issue-based campaigns, and it ensures that candidates win with over 50% support from their district. For a short 1-minute primer on how RCV works, check out the video on the YES on 2 website. Register here.
