Ranked Choice Voting Listening Session
Join Supervisor Otto Lee and the California Ranked Choice Voting Coalition for a listening and information session on Ranked Choice Voting in Santa Clara County.
Location: Maker Nexus, 1330 Orleans Dr., Sunnyvale, CA 94089
Wed. December 6, 2023 - 6:00 to 7:00 PM
These listening sessions are intended to inform the community about a new law that will give the County of Santa Clara the ability to implement Ranked Choice Voting for County elections.
Ranked Choice Voting was recently adopted in Bay Area cities such as San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley, allowing voters to rank their preferred candidates, with the winner determined by a simple majority.
The County has shown an interest in ranked choice voting for some time. In 1998, voters passed Measure F which ensured ranked choice voting would not be prohibited in the county legislature. In 2019, the county purchased new voting machines that would make ranked choice voting possible.
Wednesday, December 06, 2023, 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada) (UTC-08:00)
