WE DID IT! The city of Evanston has voted to adopt RCV for local elections!

Ranked choice voting puts voters first.

  • Majority Winners Guaranteed

    Gone are the days of politicians winning elections with only a tiny fraction of the votes. Under RCV, candidates are required to have more than 50% support to win.

  • Support Multiple Candidates

    Ranked choice voting allows voters to rank multiple candidates in order of preference, enabling you to vote for the candidate you love while still supporting the candidate you like.

  • More Civility

    With ranked choice voting, candidates are not just competing to be voters’ favorite choice, they’re also competing to be their opponent’s voters’ second or third favorite choice, resulting in more positivity and cooperation.

RCV For Evanston is proudly endorsed by:

  • Daniel Biss

    Evanston Mayor

  • Robyn Gabel

    State Representative

  • Mike Simmons

    State Senator

  • Sebastian Nalls

    Former Mayoral Candidate
