Where RCV is Used


RCV is a tested and accepted voting method
used in several jurisdictions across the United States – Minneapolis & St.
Paul (MN), San Francisco, Berkeley, San Leandro & Oakland (CA), Portland (ME), Takoma Park
(MD), Hendersonville (NC), Portland (ME), Cambridge (MA), Telluride (CO) for municipal elections and in South Carolina, Louisiana and Arkansas for military and overseas voters.  RCV is pending implementation in more than a dozen other
cities, including Memphis (TN) and Santa Fe (NM). 

RCV is also used in democracies across the
world, including Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland
and London.

Strong voter education has resulted in high approval ratings in all of these jurisdictions and successful ballot measure campaigns are adding to the number of jurisdictions using Ranked Choice Voting every year.

Ranked Choice Voting is also used in democracies such as Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and London.

It is also used in hundreds of colleges and by several organizations, including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Best Picture award.
