Last November, Maine became the first state in U.S. history to pass a voting system called Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) that could transform politics in America. Instead of choosing just one candidate on your ballot, RCV allows you to rank multiple candidates in the order you prefer, allowing a gradation in the outcome that guarantees that the candidate with the best overall support wins the race in a crowded field and virtually eliminates the need for any runoff election. Eleven major cities in the U.S. already use RCV, including Cambridge, MA.
Jim Henderson of Voter Choice Massachusetts will be our speaker.
