One week to get RCV on the ballot!

Volunteers from Voter Choice for Massachusetts, the Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) campaign, made history last fall when they submitted 111,000 certified signatures to the Secretary of the Commonwealth; the most ever by a Massachusetts ballot initiative campaign. The Massachusetts Pirate Party supports RCV and we are proud to be part of this historic effort to give a stronger voice and more choice to voters.

Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) allows voters to rank the candidates on the ballot by order of their preference. RCV requires the winner to win with a majority of the vote rather simply the most votes. It will ensure that Pirate Party candidates won’t be labeled spoilers and will help us and other third parties gain voters and supporters. It is one step to bring true multiparty democracy to Massachusetts.

We have one more week to earn RCV a place on the November 3, 2020 ballot and the campaign must submit a second round of 13,374 valid signatures by June 17. The campaign kicked off the signature drive on May 6th and has been going strong getting thousands of MA voters to sign the RCV petition electronically from home.

We hope you will take a minute to sign the RCV petition right now by clicking here, and please share this URL with your friends and family (sign.voterchoice2020.org). Nothing like this has ever been done before, but with your help we can make history together.
