EV 22 2.22 No Link Ranked Choice Voting Graphic
How does ranked choice voting work? Will it deliver more representative election outcomes? Does it encourage less contentious campaigning? Is it too complicated? Join us to have these questions answered and more.

Ranked choice voting (RCV) has been gaining in popularity, with more than 50 different jurisdictions (states, counties and cities) expected to use it in their next election cycle. This important election reform is now being considered for Connecticut. Hear from a panel of experts who worked to implement RCV in NYC and Maine as well as in states and municipalities across the country.

LWV Greenwich does not have a position either in support of or opposed to Ranked Choice Voting. This event is offered as an educational event. The Vermont League of Women Voters has prepared this summary of the Pros and Cons of Ranked Choice Voting, which may be interesting to read beforehand (CLICK HERE to read). 

Questions for the panelists can be submitted with event registration. CLICK HERE to register.

The event will be recorded for subsequent broadcast by Connecticut Public Television.
