Ranked Choice Voting

Ranked choice voting (RCV) gives voters greater voice because voters have the freedom to rank candidates: 1, 2, 3 and so on. Everyone has an equal vote, every voice counts, and as many voters as possible are able to help elect winners.

The charter review committee has proposed Santa Clara have three city council members elected in one-half of the city and three in the other. When electing three seats, it means more than three in four voters will have the opportunity to elect someone they ranked. When electing the mayor, RCV also promotes fairness because the winner earns a majority of the vote and the results are more broadly representative.
