Members of the League of Independent Theater attended an information session Ranked Choice Voting, hosted by Common Cause, on Tuesday, Aug. 27. Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) referendum will be on the November ballot in New York City. If voters approve RCV this November in America's largest city, it would triple the number of people using RCV.
The League of Independent Theater believes this reform could greatly improve our elections because one would no longer have to choose the lesser of two evils at the ballot box and it would decrease the potential ugliness of campaigns. We hope you will take some time to learn more about how it works.
They are having a number of events to help people understand it better, including a ranked choice craft beer event and several presidential primary debate viewing parties. So sign up for details. You can learn more about the referendum here in the city at rcv.nyc.
Ranked Choice Voting enjoys broad support including: the League of Women Voters NYC, Citizens Union, New York Immigration Coalition, Comptroller Scott Stringer, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, Attorney General Letitia James, Brad Lander, NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson, and more.
