Assemblymembers Catalina Cruz and Ron Kim Rally for Ranked Choice Voting
Ranked Choice Voting is Question 1 on the ballot, which New Yorkers can now vote for with Early Voting.
QUEENS, NY (10/29/2019) (readMedia)-- Queens Assemblymembers Catalina Cruz and Ron Kim and community group Minkwon rally to support Ranked Choice Voting which will be Question 1 on the ballot. New Yorkers can take advantage of Early Voting which runs October 26th - November 3rd, or vote on Election Day November 5th.
Ranked Choice Voting would apply to primary and special elections starting in 2021 for all local offices including; City Councilmembers, Borough Presidents, the Public Advocate and the Mayor.
Ranked Choice Voting gives voters the option to rank their top five candidates in local New York City primary and special elections. If voters still want to vote for just one candidate, they can. A candidate who collects a majority of the vote, fifty percent plus one, wins. If there's no majority winner, then the last place candidate will be eliminated and the second choice votes for that candidate are redistributed. The process is repeated until there is a majority winner.
