Last year 1000 WOMEN STRONG launched a canvassing program in southwest Georgia that supported the senate runoff election.
New York city is going to be extremely important because of the introduction of rank choice voting.
Our goal is to provide voter education on the new voting changes and We are excited to continue to build strong, lasting, and needed relationships in our community, and stay committed to the works at hand.
How does RCV work?
You can rank up to five candidates in order of preference, instead of choosing just one. If a candidate receives more than 50% of first-choice votes, they are the winner. If no candidate earns more than 50% of first-choice votes, then counting will continue in rounds. At the end of each round, the candidate with the fewest votes will be eliminated. If you ranked that candidate first, your vote will go to the next highest ranked candidate on your ballot. This process will continue until there are 2 candidates left. The candidate with the most votes wins.
Starting in 2021, NYC will use Ranked Choice Voting in primary and special elections for local offices: Mayor, Public Advocate, Comptroller, Borough President, and City Council. Ranked Choice Voting will be used in all Special Elections taking place after January 1, 2021. The first citywide election with Ranked Choice Voting will be the Primary Election on June 22, 2021.
