Ranked Choice Voting is a better way to vote!

Instead of being limited to voting for only one candidate, Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) allows a voter to rank candidates in order of their preference. RCV would be a simple upgrade to elections for Fort Collins City Council and Mayor. RCV would make our elections fairer and more democratic because candidates will win with the support of the majority of voters.

 

What are the benefits of Ranked Choice Voting?

RCV can make Fort Collins’ campaigns and elections better by:

  • Giving voters more choice. Candidates can run without concern of causing a spoiler effect.
  • Giving voters more voice. No longer limited to voting for only one candidate, voters know they still have a voice even if their top choice won’t win.
  • Incentivizes positive collaborations and reduces negative campaigning. Candidates must focus on issues and broaden their appeal beyond their base to gain a majority of support to win.
  • A more democratic and fairer voting process encourages voting and increases voter turnout.
