Better Elections are possible

In fact, they're already happening.

Some California voters are already experiencing the benefits of ranked choice voting such as reduced political polarization, less negative campaigning, and more choice

On top of that, votes matter more. Every district becomes a swing district, each vote much more important. And it eliminates the problem of gerrymandering and makes voting more representative and fairer.

Now let's make them happen everywhere.

California voters understand and use RCV.

It can be explained in under 2 minutes, and according to FairVote analysis, voters in California cities with RCV understood it better than they did the state’s Top-Two Primary system.
