    Ranked-Choice Voting and More: Electoral Reform for the 21st Century

    Ranked-choice voting (RCV) lets voters specify, on one ballot, who their second and third choices are, in case their first choice is defeated. Candidates have to win a majority of votes to be elected. In this Zoom meeting, Common Ground for Texans board members Joanne Richards and Dan Eckam will review how RCV works; its history, current usage, and benefits; and how you can help pursue this reform. Related reforms will be discussed if there's time. Log-on details will be posted in the Facebook event prior to the meeting.
    Sat., May 23, 2-4pm. Free.
