Pre-Election

The resources in the Pre-Election section are geared towards helping election administrators, candidates, the media, and voters understand and prepare for a ranked choice voting election. We focus on four main components of preparation: drafting statutes and resolutions; identifying and procuring election and tabulation systems; designing a clear and accessible ranked choice voting ballot; and developing plans for outreach and education/training.
