Ranked Choice Voting: Boon or Doom for Dems?

October 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Monday.   Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) for municipal elections is on the ballot in Ann Arbor (as Proposal B) on November 2. RCV has gained a lot of momentum in recent years, with advocates touting it as a cure for extreme partisanship and boon for accurate representation of voters’ interests and inclinations. But what if, as WCDP Chair Chris Savage says in a recent Eclectablog post, RCV strongly favors Republicans in Michigan, and could “doom democracy”?
This special meeting is devoted to sorting out these competing claims.

  • Questioning the wisdom of RCV for Ann Arbor, Chris Savage and Dirk Mayhew
  • Defending its benefits, Sarah Woolsey of Rank MI Vote (and office manager for the Kent County Democratic Party) and Ann Arbor City Council member Lisa Disch.

It’ll be a lively night. Register for the meeting here.
