RCV ensures that the winning candidate will have support from a majority of voters. See the many other benefits!

LWVMC in coalition with RCV for Maryland, led by Fair Vote, is advocating for RCV in Montgomery County.

In 2017, LWVMC testified in support of MC-19-18 (HB 173). This year the MoCo Delegation plans to introduce similar legislation, MC-29-19 Montgomery County-Voting Methods and LWVMC plans to support it again.

Attend Fair Vote’s activist summit on December 1 (details here) and learn how to help advocate for RCV.
