Senate Bill 32, Bringing Ranked Choice Voting to Vermont

May 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
The League of Women Voters is an advocate for ranked choice voting in Vermont and is conducting a robust public education program to familiarize voters with this voting system and reinforce voter confidence.

Dr. Betty Keller of the League of Women Voters provides an update on S.32, Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) in Presidential Primaries, that passed the Vermont Senate and is now in the House.

The bill was amended to allow municipalities to choose RCV for some local elections as soon as 2024 Town Meeting Day. It also created a summer study committee to develop policies for implementing RCV for the presidential primaries and assess the possibility of starting RCV in 2026 for some statewide elections.

Betty will explain where in the process the bill is; what changes have been made; and what is expected next. Registration link at https://lwvofvt.org/events-calendar.
