Also, thank you to our co-sponsors. These organizations are also actively working on ranked choice voting and proportional representation here in Washington State. Please visit their websites for more information.
I wanted to also let you know I made an error in answering one of the questions related to possible reasons the Massachusetts initiative for ranked choice voting did not win in the 2020 election. I said it might have had to do with money from the opposition, which was incorrect. It was actually the opposite. News coverage following the election reported the proponents raised and spent over $10 million compared to the opponents -- who were barely visible in the campaign and spent less than $10,000. One reason suggested was possibly poor messaging.
