At our monthly meetings, we welcome new supporters, give updates on our progress, and share ways to get more involved. Our featured speaker for this month is Rank the Vote's Executive Director Nathan Lockwood, who will discuss how Ohio fits into the national RCV movement!WHENFebruary 25, 2024 at 7:00pmWHEREZoom - RSVP for the link
Join us Sunday March 17, Feast of Saint Patrick, for a canvass. We will plan to meet in Public Square downtown Cleveland and we can talk to voters about RCV as they gather for the parade. Then we should get a Guinness :)
Here's a map of the 2023 parade route; I haven't heard that anythings changed. I've got all the supplies you need, if you've already done pitch training, great! If you haven't, no problem, we can get you up to speed on the spot.
If you have an idea about another town closer to you with an event going on Sunday March 17, 2024, we would love to be there too! You can email me at [email protected] and we can set you right up to host your own canvass!

497 signaturesRegardless of how local leaders feel about Ranked Choice Voting, we are opposed to SB 137's violation of Local Home Rule. Ohio localities should be allowed to decide for themselves if RCV or other election methods are more appropriate for our communities than pick-one, plurality-wins elections. Big government should not unfairly punish communities if we choose to achieve majority rule through RCV or other means. Please sign below to protect Ohio communities' right to Home Rule.--
I support Instant Runoffs with Ranked Choice Ballots in Ohio!2,653 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!
