Ranked-Choice Voting

 

Where We Stand

The League of Women Voters of the District of Columbia supports Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) for partisan contests in both primary and general elections. 

Ranked Choice Voting assures that the winning candidate will obtain a majority vote.  We believe that this system, which enables voters to rank candidates by preference, provides voters more voice in elections and leads to more representative government.  With Ranked Choice Voting, the candidate with the broadest support of the voters is elected. Ranked Choice Voting also has the potential to lead to more informative campaigns that are issues-focused.
