Better Elections Are Possible: Informational Meeting

January 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST

Ranked choice voting, multi-member districts, and proportional representation are some of the reforms being discussed and implemented across the nation. Find out more and meet other local folks who want better elections. We will meet at 7:00 pm Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation (OUUC), 2315 Division Street NW, Olympia, WA. This is a nonpartisan gathering. Better elections are for all of us!
The event is organized by FairVote WA – Thurston/Olympia and will provide information on how ranked choice voting works and some of the benefits it promises. We’ll also update you on the “Local Options Bill (HB2746)”, which could open the door for ranked choice voting in cities and counties across the state. In addition, we will look at how new voting initiatives fared this year in Maine, Memphis and British Columbia.
Remember, compared to all the voting systems democracies use today, the way we now vote least effectively represents the will of the majority. No wonder democracy in this country seems to be on the skids. Ranked choice voting won’t change everything, but please join us if you agree that things do need to change!
Questions? Call Harmon at (360) 456-5192 or email h.eaton@comcast.net.
