Californians for Electoral Reform has been working for Proportional Representation and Ranked Choice Voting for over 20 years, and we continue to work on these issues actively. We are an action-oriented group, with chapters and contacts around the state, working in the State Legislature, and working in many local communities, promoting and educating about PR and RCV.
We have led successful campaigns for RCV in San Leandro, Oakland, San Francisco, and Berkeley, and spoken to thousands of people. RCV is now much better known than it was 20 years ago and is being seriously considered in several jurisdictions around the state. We have twice got legislation through both houses of the legislature and to the governor’s desk. We are well known in Sacramento and in electoral reform circles, and have a lot of respect in Sacramento and statewide.
You can join for free. You can also send in a little (or a lot of) money to help the movement if you can. If you have time and energy you can get involved in a campaign or education work. If you want to get our quarterly newsletter and monthly updates, you can do that too, at no cost.
