It's already used in the state of Maine and major cities including San Francisco, Minneapolis, Santa Fe and more.
New York City is the largest city in the country. Passing ranked choice voting here would triple the number of people using ranked choice voting in America.
The Charter Revision Commission is appointed by the mayor, city council speaker, comptroller, and borough presidents, which means getting an endorsement from Mayor de Blasio would be a huge help as they consider whether to put ranked choice voting on this November's ballot.
