For the first time, the United States was declared a "backsliding" democracy in a report from International IDEA. This is unacceptable. We must reclaim our democracy. One of the best ways we can do this is with one simple fix: Ranked Choice Voting (RCV).
Join Hoosiers from around the state at Better Ballot Indiana's monthly statewide meeting on Tuesday, December 7th at 8PM ET (7PM CT) to discuss the strategy for implementing Ranked Choice Voting in Indiana.
Our meeting will include general strategy, capacity-building, and action team break-out sessions.
RECENT RCV WINS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
In the November 2021 elections, Ann Arbor MI, Westbrook ME, and Broomfield CO all won their Ranked Choice Voting municipal campaigns! We will take note of what these cities did to win, and we'll work to transfer that knowledge to Indiana.
WHAT IS RANKED CHOICE VOTING?
RCV is a simple upgrade to the ballot. Instead of choosing just one candidate, RCV allows you to rank multiple candidates in the order you prefer them (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so on). This solves a number of long-standing problems in our American political system: the intractability of the two major parties; “spoiler” candidates; candidates who win elections without majority support; negative attack ads; and poor voter turnout and engagement.
Come listen, learn, and get your questions answered about how we can bring RCV to Indiana and save our democracy!
