Veterans for Political Innovation

BlackPAC.gop helps elect conservative Black, Latin, and Asian leaders and "supports Ranked Choice Voting as a method of enhancing voter participation by giving voters greater say in who they want to see elected to office."
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."
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."
Akron City Councilmember

I support Instant Runoffs with Ranked Choice Ballots in Ohio!2,085 signatures
Instant Runoffs with Ranked Choice Voting simply require a majority to win, while giving all voters more choice and more voice so that you can vote for your true favorite without feeling like your vote is wasted. When you have backup choices, more parties and candidates can run because you don't have to worry about "spoilers" and you can have more confidence that your vote will actually matter. Political toxicity decreases when candidates have to focus on problem-solving and finding common ground to win a majority instead of simply attacking the "other side" as the greater evil. So you can vote your hopes, not your fears!
Our team is working with allies on potential ballot language, but in the meantime we need to build our list to show the political class that Ohioans want Ranked Choice Voting in Ohio. Please sign here and spread awareness by inviting your friends!
