Ranked Choice Voting Beginning In NYC

Early voting begins in New York City and for the first time ranked choice voting will be in place.

That means New Yorkers will vote for their top five candidates in an election to eliminate the potential need for a runoff election. Mayor Bill de Blasio is encouraging people to practice with a “Rank Your Pizza” challenge on the city’s official website.

“This year, democracy gets an upgrade in New York City. But any new system takes time and practice to get it right. That’s why we’re calling on every New Yorker to rank their pizza toppings this week,” de Blasio said.
