ABOUT THE RANKED CHOICE VOTING RESOURCE CENTER
The Ranked Choice Voting Resource Center provides a compilation of best practices and first-hand experiences from jurisdictions that have used this method of voting. The website and overall project serve as a resource for voters, election administrators, policy makers, and candidates. Our role is not advocacy focused. Rather, our primary mission is to provide research, education, and training about ranked choice voting. Our services are free, including travel, through our current grant funding.
