Use Ranked Choice Voting for Santa Cruz City Council Elections

We, the undersigned, registered, qualified voters of the City of Santa Cruz, California, hereby propose amendments to the City of Santa Cruz Charter to use Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) to determine City Council Elections.

Using RCV, Santa Cruz voters have the freedom to rank candidates in order of preference, which gives more voice and greater choice and produces fairer results.

Draft language for the proposed statute is available here
