We are working with city council members to arrange getting RCV on the ballot.

Better elections creates better government.

Help us ensure that candidates have to have at least 50% support in order to be elected. We can do this by switching to ranked choice voting (RCV) in Kansas City! Soon, the question will go on the ballot for voters in Kansas City to choose this better voting option. The city council members are not opposed to changing, but need to see that it is what voters want in order to put it into action. With your help, we can implement a voting system that brings voters together to elect the best representatives instead of increasing the current divide in politics. Learn more about RCV so you can tell your family, friends, and neighbors.
