My latest for @inthesetimesmag: Ranked choice voting is poised to become the next widespread democracy reform. Between ballot initiatives and its use in the Democratic presidential primary/general election, the next 12 months will be make-or-break.…
First up is NYC which will vote on the reform tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov 5). If New Yorkers vote #Yeson1, it will raise the number of those living in jurisdictions that use or will use RCV from 4 million to over 12 million. It will also prime the media to cover it moving forward.
Then up to 5 caucuses will likely use RCV in 2020 (Nevada, Hawaii, Alaska, Kansas, and Wyoming). This, if done correctly, will increase voter familiarity with RCV. And if the media does its job, these elections will inform the rest of the country about RCV.

Watch on YouTube, and we'll be tweeting here...
Public Comment will be 3 minutes each.

"Never before has density and the type of development been so relevant to elections."

Speaker advocates to not make a decision until after November 6th. Good reminder to vote for pro-housing candidates!
It's going to be a long night, so pack a snack and please head down to join Cupertino YIMBYs to fight for a welcoming Bay Area.
