We’re on the verge of getting Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) implemented for NYC elections! This would be a major step in making our elections fairer and more democratic. The final public hearing is Tuesday, May 14, in Staten Island, where we need you to come out to let the City Council Charter Commission know why we need RCV, not just for NYC primaries and special elections, but for general elections as well! Watch testimony from the Brooklyn hearing.
No need to sign up in advance to testify, but we’d love to know if you’re coming. Green Party of Brooklyn will be there to help with talking points.
If you haven’t been able to make it to any of the public hearings, please submit your testimony online. Every person who testifies will make a huge difference to this effort. And make sure to mention the need for RCV in NYC’s general elections!
