RSVP to join Monday's Textbank to tell our supporters in NYC 

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 for the November ballot. If passed, it would triple the number of people using RCV in the United States.

The Charter Revisions Commission will soon decide whether to put RCV on the ballot or kill it. 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 Monday, June 3rd, we are hosting a virtual textbank to contact New York City supporters to attend two upcoming events in support of Ranked Choice Voting.

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.
