BPs Adams + Brewer, Speaker Johnson, Comptroller Stringer: We Need to Invest in Ranked Choice Voting NOW

City officials come together to pledge commitment to new voting reform

NEW YORK, NY (02/12/2020) (readMedia)-- Four leading city officials will come together to pledge their shared commitment to investing in voter education and outreach about Ranked Choice Voting ahead of the 2021 elections. Ranked Choice Voting is a consensus driven method of voting that New York City voters overwhelmingly approved via ballot referendum this past fall. Ranked Choice Voting is a proven reform that helps diversify representation, reduce negative campaigning, and eliminate the spoiler effect.

Adams, Brewer, Johnson, and Stringer will focus specifically on measures to reach historically disenfranchised communities who stand to benefit the most from ranked choice voting.
