OREGON — The City of Corvallis has announced the implementation of a ranked choice voting system for the municipal Nov. 8 general election.
”This year marks the first time the system has been used in a Benton County municipal general.
The ranked choice voting system was passed under 2016’s measure 2-100 and was used in the Benton County Commissioner race in the 2020 general election. This year marks the first time the system has been used in a Benton County municipal general.
Under RCV, voters will have a choice between multiple candidates for both the mayoral position and nine city council seats. Instead of only voting for their top candidate, voters will now rank their top three candidates if there are more than two contenders in the race. One write-in candidate can be ranked on an RCV ballot.
