Rank Choice Voting - Program Today

LWVCO  | Published on 2/22/2021
To all LWVCO members and supporters:
 
LWVCO urges you to support HB21-1071 - Ranked Choice Voting in Nonpartisan Elections, sponsored by Representative Kennedy, Representative Arndt and Senator Fenberg.  

Beginning in 2023, the bill allows a municipality to refer a municipal election using instant runoff voting to be conducted as part of a coordinated election.  This bill furthers the LWVCO position on voting methods, which supports authorizing and implementing alternatives to plurality voting that improves the election experience, encourages honest voting and considers ease of implementation.

HB21-1071 will be heard in the House State, Civic, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee on Monday February 22 at 1:30 pm.  Please contact your Representative today asking them to support this legislation.  In addition, support of the County Clerks will be essential in getting this important legislation passed.  We also ask that you contact your County Clerk & Recorder and share your perspective on why this bill is needed in your community!
