Win Ranked Choice Voting in the State House
Our 2019 campaign is to pass a Ranked Choice Voting bill through the MA State House. We are very glad to say that the effort of everyone involved in Voter Choice MA is helping to make that a reality. As of February 1, we have 84 supporters of RCV in the State House out of 200 legislators!
That's an astonishing 42% of the State House who have expressed support of RCV within the first month of the session!
Here's how that breaks down.
In January, our legislative allies filed two bills (see our fact sheet for more information):
- RCV State & Federal Bill (SD768/HD815): Sen. Jason Lewis; Rep. Andy Vargas, Rep. Adrian Madaro
Enact Ranked Choice Voting for all state and federal elections (except for President).
-- Currently 71 co-sponsors (14 senators and 67 representatives).
RCV Local Option Bill (SD1800/HD1999): Sen. Becca Rausch; Rep. Jen Benson
Allow cities and towns an easier way to adopt Ranked Choice Voting for local elections.
-- Currently 62 co-sponsors (16 senators and 46 representatives)
To date we have a total of 82 legislators (17 senators and 65 representatives) who have co-sponsored RCV legislation.
