Virginia: Municipal RCV Adoption

Campaign Status: On Hold

The Policy

Expand the use of RCV in Virginia to include town council elections, school board elections and other key municipal elections.


In 2020, the Virginia General Assembly passed a law permitting cities and counties to adopt Ranked Choice Voting for their elections. While a step in the right direction, the law does not permit RCV to be used in key local races like town council and school board elections.

RCV is already gaining traction in Virginia. Most notably, Virginia Republicans in 2021 used RCV to nominate Glenn Youngkin as their candidate for Virginia Governor.

With many cities and counties in Virginia considering adopting RCV, now is the time to ensure that voters can make use of this better voting system in local municipal elections.
