Kick Off the Ranked Choice Voting Letter Drive in Colorado

RepresentUs

Location: Online

Ranked-choice voting is building momentum in Colorado. Let’s make sure everyone from around the state is clued in.
When Colorado voters go to the polls this November, many of them won’t even consider voting for independents or third-party candidates in fear of wasting their votes or worse, opening the door for the candidate they like the least. This is called the spoiler effect and it makes it almost impossible for candidates outside the two major parties to win.

Ranked choice voting allows voters to rank multiple candidates, giving voters more voice, more choice, and the freedom to select candidates they truly believe in. Colorado voters in select cities have been using RCV for years but we now have the chance to bring it to the rest of the state.

The momentum is building, but we need to make sure everyone in the Centennial State is on board. That’s why RepresentUs members are getting the word out by sending letters to local newspapers across the state. The more people learn about ranked choice voting, the closer we will be to expanding it.

Join Represent Colorado members on Zoom to learn how you can help spread the word about the benefits of ranked choice voting through the press. On the call, you’ll get the inside scoop from mobilization leader Ben Levinsohn and a step-by-step walkthrough from RepresentUs PR Strategist Ross Sherman.

Not in Colorado? We’d love to have you on the call anyways to learn how to take these principles back to a ranked choice voting campaign in your home state.
