Rep. Nadler Rallys for Ranked Choice Voting in NYC
+ Comptroller Stringer, Sens. Hoylman and Jackson, Assemb. Linda Rosenthal and CM Rodriguez
NEW YORK, NY (10/26/2019) (readMedia)-- Congressman Jerrold Nadler will rally with other elected officials and advocates in support of 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, Comptroller 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.
