Better Ballot KC!

Who we are

We are a group of Kansas City voters wanting to bring Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) to Kansas City.  RCV (also known as Instant Runoff Voting, or IRV) is a system of voting that allows voters to rank candidates in order of preference (i.e. first, second, third, fourth and so on). The voters' preferences are counted until a candidate emerges with a true majority of the vote: over 50%. Voters can rank as many or as few candidates as they wish, but can vote without fear that ranking less-favored candidates will harm the chances of their most preferred candidates. In elections today at almost every level, candidates only have to receive more votes than the other candidates to win - often earning a very small percentage of the actual vote - which ignores the true preferences of most of the voters. See Flyers and FAQ.

We can't change the electoral system without you!  Please join our mailing list by emailing us at or by visiting , signing in with a Google account, and clicking "Ask to Join Group".

Building the Yes Vote

* We need people to leaflet voters coming out of the polls on April 4 and June 20. All day, a half day, an hour, a handful when you go to vote, every bit helps.

* We need to speak with groups, table, and leaflet. If you can invite us to do so or give us leads, that would help.

For details or to volunteer, call Rachel MacNair at 816-753-2057 or email

Discuss the benefits with friends, family, and co-workers!
