Ranked-choice voting (RCV) is a simple solution with a big impact. It promotes majority support, contributes to more civil and issue-oriented campaigns, gives voters more choices, and produces a more reflective democracy. Amidst widespread frustration with politics among both voters and elected officials, it’s no surprise that ranked-choice voting is gaining momentum across the country as a win-win solution that strengthens our democracy.

The RCV movement is poised to continue its momentum. BIlls in Congress would establish RCV across all congressional elections, with both the Ranked Choice Voting Act and the more comprehensive Fair Representation Act garnering growing political and intellectual support. State activity is growing. FairVote President Rob Richie will discuss ranked-choice voting’s transformative impact and what it will take to bring RCV to states like New Jersey.

Speaker:

Rob Richie has been the leader of FairVote since co-founding the organization in 1992 and was named president and CEO in 2018. He has played a key role in advancing, winning, and implementing electoral reforms at the local and state levels. Richie has been involved in helping to develop, win, and implement: ranked-choice voting in states and more than 20 cities, fair representation voting systems in numerous Voting Rights Act cases, the National Popular Vote plan in 16 states, and voter access proposals like voter preregistration and automatic voter registration.
