Potables & Voteables: Beer Election & Pioneer Valley RCV Meetup

Join us for our June beer election alongside People's Pint of Greenfield. Learn about ranked choice voting while relaxing with friends, sample our excellent brews, and use RCV to rank the beer candidates!

RCV is a voting system (just passed in Maine) that allows you to rank your candidates (1, 2, 3...) in the order of preference. It solves the problem of spoiler candidates and vote-splitting, discourages negative campaigning, and ensures that the winner receives a true majority of support.

We'll be sampling beers and ranking our favorites in a live, interactive RCV-style election.

We'll hear from leaders of the RCV movement, who will give a basic introductory presentation to explain what ranked choice voting is, and tell you about the actions we're taking specifically in the Pioneer Valley to advance this important reform.

Here's a run-down of the evening:

7 - 8:15pm - Arrive and drink beer
8:15 - 8:35 pm - Listen to leaders present RCV (and drink more beer)
8:35 pm - Last call for RCV ballots
8:45 pm - RCV election result
