The virtual forum is part of a five-part series bringing together policymakers, leaders from government, advocacy professionals, academia, media, technology and more.
New York voters will see a big change in the next election cycle with the implementation of ranked-choice voting. Our diverse panel will discuss the major issues on ranked choice voting and its effect in Brooklyn. Topics to be addressed include the following:
-How exactly will ranked-choice voting work in New York City?
-What are the pros and cons? Who benefits? Who is disadvantaged?
-How to inform voters? Risk of confusion?
-How will this affect campaigning? Less negative campaigning? Coalition campaigning?
-What kinds of candidates will benefit from this? Who will be hurt by it?
