Support Ranked Choice Voting Lobby Day on July 16?

Voter Choice MA has several bills proposed:

  • RCV Local Options bill (S.420/H.635) make it easier for municipalities to adopt RCV without having to go through the Legislature for approval;
  • State and Federal RCV Bill (S.414/H.719)

They are having a lobby day on July 16th. Suggest we support it since we support RCV/IRV.

Worcester farm group is interested in having some FOSS tutorials. Perhaps:
