The basic structure of the five-member Arlington County Board and School Board, all elected at-large, has gone largely unchanged since their inception in 1930, when the County population hovered at 35,000. As the County's increasingly diverse residents approach 240,000, is it time to expand the size of these bodies, elect them by district, or implement ranked choice voting? The Civic Federation's Taskforce in Government and Election Reform has been considering these questions. Members of the taskforce will join us to discuss the pros, cons, and open questions about these and other new ideas.
