Learn about ranked choice voting on November's ballot
Date & Time
LocationThis is a Virtual Event.
Open to the U-M community.
P3E invites the U-M Community to learn about Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), which is on the ballot in Ann Arbor in the upcoming November 2nd election.
The Ann Arbor City Charter Amendment reads: "Shall the Charter be amended to provide that the Mayor and City Council members are to be nominated and elected by a Ranked Choice Voting method when it is authorized by State Law?"
Mandy Mitchell (MPP '22) will present her research from this past summer when she worked as a P3E research fellow with the Michigan Consensus Policy Project (MCPP) investigating the likely impacts of adopting RCV. The MCPP is a bipartisan working group of former state officials that seeks to identify nonpartisan solutions to the state's most pressing issues.
RCV was used previously in Ann Arbor during the 1975 mayor's race (read more at M-Live).
