Voter education covers a wide range of topics from voting procedures, to how to register, to information about which offices are up for election. Voter education is of particular importance when ranked choice voting has recently been adopted in a jurisdiction. Processes like how to rank candidates and how ballots will be counted need to be understood by voters before they go to the polls.
This page provides numerous examples of voter education materials from jurisdictions that have implemented ranked choice voting elections.
Our team is compiling additional reference materials for designing voter education materials, which will be added to the Resource Center upon completion.
