Pirate News: Ranked Choice Voting, Elections and COVID-19

Massachusetts Pirates Joe, Christine, Malt, Steve and James talk about the latest news of interest to Pirates. The COVID-19 pandemic continues on and has implications for people’s lives, the economy and our elections.

  • Steve talks about what Arlington is doing to keep its town government accountable to voters.
  • Malt talks about efforts to suppress voting.
  • James gives an update on Voter Choice MA’s efforts to get on Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), aka Instant Runoff Voting, on the November ballot and how you can help them get the 13,000+ digital signatures they need. Sign their voter pledge by Wednesday, May 6th!
