Advocate and educate about Ranked Choice Voting (RCV)

A related action item was adopted, to advocate for and educate about Instant Runoff Voting (IRV), also known as Ranked Choice Voting (RCV). The LWVVT adopted a position in support of ranked choice voting for all statewide elections in 1999. In our last presidential election both major party candidates were considered unfavorable by many voters, but casting one’s vote for a candidate who was not nominated by one of the two major parties was perceived as a “wasted vote” and low voter turnout resulted. Ranked Choice Voting is particularly useful when there are three major parties, as we have in Vermont.
