Ranked Choice Voting helps your vote matter. By prioritizing the candidate that the majority wants in office instead of pushing voters to vote against the candidate they don't want in office, RCV leads to a voting system we can all agree on. Organizations, political parties, and politicians across the state have reached out to endorse this newer, better voting system; will you be our next endorsement?
Cleveland VOTES is a nonpartisan democracy building and mobilizing entity that aims to strengthen civic muscle and power to ensure we have a more informed, participatory, and cohesive community.
Akron City Councilmember
Our Revolution Ohio
"Ranked Choice Voting offers the best opportunity for legitimate change in leadership in this country away from the corruption and 'politics as usual'"
Hamilton County Libertarian Party
"We believe that the political party options are too constrained and do not serve the people of Ohio well. The best way to be represented at the ballot box is to avoid simply voting for the lesser of two evils."
2020 Democratic Primary Candidate | Forward Party Co-Chair
Ohio Green Party
"The Green Party seeks to repair our electoral system, from how elections are financed, to conducting them in more fair and representative ways, to ensure accountability and transparency on all levels of government. We fully support Rank the Vote Ohio to ensure that the eventual winner has majority support and allows voters to express their preferences knowing that supporting their favorite candidate will not inadvertently help their least favorite candidate."
Ohio Move to Amend
"Ranked choice voting is a vital step to increasing voter participation, the diversity of candidates, the discussion of issues, and the overall integrity of elections."
The American Solidarity Party of Ohio
"The American Solidarity Party of Ohio proudly endorses Rank the Vote Ohio in its efforts to bring a more civil tone, a more diverse slate of candidates, and a more level playing field for third parties to our democracy through ranked choice voting."
Unitarian Universalist Justice of Ohio
"Ranked Choice Voting offers a path away from harmful, and often false, binary choices that American voters must typically make. Ohioans deserve the opportunity to vote for the best candidate of their choice, not for the one candidate they dislike the least. Justice is served when our democracy operates in a manner that honors the voices of everyone."
