Watch Know Before You Vote: Ranked Choice Voting
Did you know that there has been a major change to the voting structure and strategy for this election cycle? Ranked-choice voting, accepted by NYC voters in 2019, allows voters to vote for their top five candidates in ranked order. But how does it actually work?
 
 
In this workshop from LMHQ, the League of Women Voters, the Women's Forum, the Alliance for Downtown New York, and the Downtown-Lower Manhattan Association, LWV President Diane Burrows gave participants an overview of ranked-choice voting: the process of voting, the benefits to candidates, and strategies that voters can employ to make their voices louder. Participants walked away excited to learn more about their favorite candidates and ready to elect the leaders who will make the best choices for the future of New York City.
