RSVP to join Thursday’s phonebank to tell Speaker Johnson to support Ranked Choice Voting in New York City.

New York City has a unique opportunity to bring transformative change to how New Yorkers vote. The 2019 Charter Revision Commission, appointed by the mayor, city council speaker, comptroller, and borough presidents, is considering including Ranked Choice Voting among the charter amendments to be approved on the ballot by voters in November. This would triple the number of people using RCV in the US. RCV is on the charter revision commission's agenda – but it's not yet on the ballot. We have to keep up the pressure on the commission and the appointers to show that improving NYC elections with RCV is a priority for New Yorkers.

On Thursday, May 30th, we are hosting a virtual phonebank to contact New York City voters and ask them to contact Speaker Corey Johnson, and urge him to support Ranked Choice Voting for all offices in NYC elections.

We’ll train you on the texting program and connect you with other texters to keep motivated and have fun. We’ll start our trainings at 5pm ET, but will be hosting trainings throughout the night, so you have flexibility for when you want to jump on.
