Are you new to Ranked Choice Voting, and eager to learn what RCV is, why it helps foster better elections, and how it works and can be implemented in our Commonwealth?

Laurie Johnson, speaker for Voter Choice Massachusetts will talk about Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), an upgraded way of voting which Maine is now using statewide, along with 20 other states for specific races. Light refreshments will be served, along with an RCV ice cream election!

Leading voices like Bill Galvin, Jim McGovern, Evan Falchuk, Steven Grossman, David Brooks, the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Economist, and many more are endorsing this transformative way of choosing our representatives. RCV is gaining ground across the country and across Massachusetts with people of all political persuasions because it is a simple, common sense improvement that gives voters more choice and more voice in elections.

Parking: Park at the Visitor’s Parking on Massachusetts Ave – across from the Whitmore Administration and Isenberg buildings.
