**This program is hosted by our partners, Democracy Funders Network and Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE), who have extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.**
Advocates for ranked choice voting (RCV) have long upheld its benefits for democratic practice, including its ability to guarantee a majority winner, increase competition among candidates, and increase civility between candidates. In June, nearly one million New Yorkers voted in the primary for mayor and all other city offices, making it the largest and most diverse application of RCV in an election to-date. Using this historic election as a jumping off point, donors will be able to reflect on some of the nuances of implementing structural democracy reform and the implications of those nuances on a broader democracy reform agenda.
With clarity of hindsight and on the heels of the general election in New York City, join Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement and Democracy Funders Network for a pragmatic look at how RCV played out in the primary.
