Opportunity at a Glance: In this year’s city primary election, New Yorkers will use Ranked Choice Voting, a system that allows voters to rank up to 5 candidates in order of preference instead of choosing just one. This new system will foster more positive, issue-focused campaigns, give voters more choice, and ensure that elected officials are accountable to a broader spectrum of their constituents; however, it can also create additional confusion for New Yorkers of all ages.
Join us as we explore the new lessons and resources created by Mikva Challenge to inform younger generations about this new way of voting.
