IRV on the Ballot in November
In addition to the looming presidential election, there are some important IRV ballot initiatives that will be decided on November 4. Cincinnati (OH), Memphis (TN), Telluride (CO), and Albany (CA) will all have the chance to advance democracy. Fun videos below . . .
Update: See Bob’s comment below for information on a home rule petition in Davis, California that would enable it to use Choice Voting and an additional note about the ordinance in Albany, California. Thanks, Bob!
In Cincinnati, the NAACP and Better Ballot Cincinnati are working hard proportional representation via Choice Voting for their 9-member at-large city council.

In Memphis, Better Ballot Memphis is urging voters to vote yes to a charter amendment that would enact IRV for elections of all city offices, including their Mayor and 13 City Councilors. Here’s their ad:
Not to be left out, voters in Telluride, Colorado will be deciding on a city ordinance that would enact IRV for their mayoral races. Another initiative in Albany, California would require either IRV or a runoff for their mayoral election. Stay tuned . . .
