Take Action

Support Ranked-Choice Voting on the ballot in Washington State!

Many people believe politics are broken, voters feel disempowered, communities don’t feel represented, and constructive disagreement has gone out the window. Ranked-choice voting (RCV) is a simple improvement to the way we vote, offering many benefits to our current system of voting.

Ranked-Choice Voting ACTION ALERT for Seattle!

The Seattle City Council is thinking about asking voters if they want to start using ranked-choice voting - so we have to act fast. We need you to contact your Seattle City Councilmembers, tell them why you support ranked-choice voting, and ask them to add it to the November ballot.
