Ranked Choice Voting

We support FairVote Virginia and their efforts to implement ranked choice voting.

Ranked choice voting is a new way to ensure that Virginians are getting the representation they actually want in Richmond.

With ranked choice voting, voters are given ballots that allow them to rank candidates in order of preference. The highest vote receivers are then placed into a runoff, where they’re second and third place rankings are added into their totals. The result? Virginians get elected officials with an actual majority, while also being able to vote for who they really want, without fear of “wasting” their vote.

Unite America supports the efforts off FairVote Virginia, who are looking to help pass HB2097 in the legislature. By ensuring a more fair electoral process for Virginians, Unite America hopes that more Virginians can see their preferences reflected in their lawmakers.
