Update on NYC Ranked Choice Voting Hearings!

By   April 28, 2019


Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), the fair voting system, is on the table for NYC elections! Public hearings on revising the City Charter to include RCV are upon us, with the first one on Tuesday evening, April 30. Join us Tuesday, or at any of the other hearings coming up in the next two weeks, to tell the City Council Charter Commission why we need RCV!

You don’t need to sign up in advance to testify, but we’d love to know if you’re coming, to make sure Green voices are heard at all five hearings (one in each borough). Stay tuned for talking points!
