It’s almost 1/23 RCV Day — time to raise up Ranked Choice Voting!
Starting on Monday, January 23 (1-23), 2023, the celebrations will begin. Everyday folks across the country this week will be raising things up for ranked choice voting on RCV day!
In Arizona, they’ll be raising glasses in celebration, in California, raising questions and answering them, in South Carolina, they’ll be raising this improvement in conversation with their legislators, and in Florida, they’ll be raising up new volunteer chapters. These are just a few of the events hosted by RCV groups as part of their mission to win RCV so that politics and government start working great for all Americans.
