Government

SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING MONDAY DEC 2, 2019

In 2007 Sarasota voters passed a ballot initiative supporting the implementation of Ranked Choice Voting in the City of Sarasota. It was seen as a way to improve elections and save taxpayer dollars by avoiding costly runoffs. At the time of the referendum, the election machines in use in Sarasota were not capable of RCV, but this changed with the purchase of new machines by the Sarasota Supervisor of Elections last year.

On Wednesday December 11th 5:30 at the Selby Library, 1331 First Street Sarasota. Ranked Choice Voting SRQ and & The Election Reform Committee of the Peace Education and Action Center will host an educational meeting, to explain how ranked choice voting works, review the current status of RCV in Sarasota and examine the opportunities, challenges and next steps in implementation.

Featured speakers will be Adam Friedman, Founder of Voter Choice Massachusetts, Sarasota Mayor, Jennifer Ahearn Koch , New College Professor, Dr. Frank Alcock and RCV SRQ Chair John Severini will address benefits and when we will implement.
