Ranked Choice Voting Portland has begun a fund raising campaign to pay for a survey in the Portland Metro area. The aim is to measure public awareness of and support for ranked choice voting and/or proportional representation for elections in one or more of Portland's offices. They are considering the offices of Portland City Commissioners, the Mayor, the Multnomah County Chair, and the Multnomah County Auditor.
The fund raising goal is $5000. Reaching the goal will signal to potential backers that the campaign is viable and worthy of support. Your contribution can help! To donate go to this ActBlue donation site. The results of the survey will determine the best path forward for bringing ranked choice voting to Portland, Oregon's largest city.
RCV Portland's next volunteer meeting will be held on Sunday, May 7, from 3:30 to 5 pm at the Hollywood branch library in Portland. Volunteers are needed to distribute informational fliers, conduct further research, and help with fundraising. If you live in the Portland area and are interested in election reform, your participation is needed!
