    These first few questions are about our major campaign focuses for 2022. Please answer as honestly as possible.

    Have you heard of ranked choice voting?


    Ranked choice voting (RCV) is an electoral system where voters rank candidates from favorite to least favorite on the ballot. If your top candidate does not win, your vote still counts toward your second preference.

    If no candidate receives more than 50% of the first-preference votes, the candidate with the lowest number of first-choice votes is eliminated. The voters who chose that candidate as their first choice will have their second-choice votes counted instead. This process, which is called instant runoff, continues until there is a majority winner.

    Would you prefer RCV over our traditional system of everyone voting for one candidate?

    Yes, I would prefer RCV.
    No, I would prefer standard voting.
    I’m not sure.

    Which aspect of RCV is the most appealing to you?

    <b>Less negative campaigns:</b> Cities with RCV have reported more civil campaigning and greater voter satisfaction with elections.
    <b>Breaking up the two-party duopoly:</b> RCV gives independents and third parties a standing chance, making election outcomes much more representative of the voters.
    <b>No “lesser of two evils":</b> With RCV, you can honestly rank candidates in order of choice, rather than worrying about who is more or less likely to win.
    <b>No more expensive, multi-day elections:</b> Ranked choice voting saves money by replacing primaries and costly, taxpayer-funded runoff elections.
    RCV does not appeal to me.

    What actions would you be willing to take to make sure that RCV is passed in more cities and states? Select any that interest you.

    Recently NPR reported that 1 in 5 election workers plan to quit their job before the 2024 election because of the daily harassment they have faced since the spread of misinformation about the 2020 election.

    Did you know that nonpartisan election workers have been bullied intensely since the last election?

    I’m unsure.

    One election official in Wisconsin reported receiving countless threats via email and phone calls from radical conspiracy theorists, including this voicemail:

    “You rigged my ******* election, you **** piece of ****. We’re going to try you and we’re going to ****** convict your piece of **** ***, and we’re gonna hang you.”

    Are you concerned about the harassment that nonpartisan election officials are facing?

    I’m unsure.

    CBS News’ 60 Minutes recently reported that many activists who believe the 2020 election was rigged are now running for positions to control elections.

    Are you concerned that the same people who are currently bullying nonpartisan election officials into resigning could take their power?

    I’m unsure.

    What actions would you be willing to take to defend honest election workers? Select any that interest you.
