Rank the Vote Ohio was founded in the summer of 2020 as a registered nonpartisan nonprofit by a group of politically diverse volunteers from across Ohio. Since then, volunteers have been working hard to achieve our mission of “greater choice, a stronger voice, and a representative democracy that works for all Ohioans" by educating fellow Buckeyes about Ranked Choice Voting and its benefits. Through in-person and online outreach, including regional chapters, we're increasing our volunteers, donations, and endorsements to show that Instant Runoffs are possible in Ohio. We've gained thousands of supporters, including bipartisan support in the Ohio Statehouse, but RCV will probably require a ballot initiative like in other states. We need to keep raising awareness and support so that a ballot initiative can be possible in 2024!

In December 2022, Rank the Vote Ohio hired its first full-time Executive Director, Kyle Herman, with the help of our national partner Rank the Vote USA. Kyle volunteered in different capacities after helping to found Rank the Vote Ohio in 2020. Kyle's previous experience includes managing pro-democracy programs in Iraq and Lebanon, responding to letters for the White House Office of Presidential Correspondence, and teaching high school history and civics. A proud son of Stow, Ohio, Kyle earned degrees from Ohio Wesleyan University and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Please contact Kyle at [email protected] if you have any questions!
