LWVMC Supports Ranked Choice Voting

LWVMC in coalition with RCV for Maryland, is advocating for RCV in Montgomery County.
LWVMC testified in support of MC-29-19 Montgomery County-Voting Methods, a bill that gives Montgomery County the ability to use RCV, at the MoCo delegation hearing in December 2018. We will continue to support RCV during the 2019 General Assembly legislative session.
