BOSTON – Voter Choice Massachusetts, the non-partisan group advocating to bring Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) to Massachusetts, filed language this week with the Attorney General’s office to put a question on the 2020 ballot that would adopt RCV for state and federal elections.
Below is a statement from Emily Fitzmaurice, Communications Director for Voter Choice Massachusetts, on the organization’s submission to the Attorney General:
"Bringing Ranked Choice Voting to Massachusetts is a commonsense way to re-energize and empower voters across the Commonwealth at this critical time in our democracy.
"This week, building upon the momentum we're seeing across the state, we submitted language to the Attorney General as the first step toward putting RCV before the voters in 2020.
"We look forward to building our campaign and continuing our work advocating for RCV as an important step to give voters more choices and a stronger voice at the ballot box and guarantee our elected leaders are supported by a true majority."
