Utah: Protect and Expand Ranked Choice Voting

Campaign Status: Active

The Policy

Ranked Choice Voting: extend/expand the RCV pilot program, defeat efforts to end the pilot program for everyone, & get more municipalities to adopt RCV

Background

In 2018, the Utah legislature authorized a municipal RCV pilot program, set to run for six years. Of the voters who used RCV in Utah in 2019, 80% reported that they preferred RCV. In 2021, 21 more cities opted to use RCV, marking a major win for Utah voters.

The pilot program is to be reconsidered in the upcoming 2024 legislature where it can be extended as is, ended, or modified in various ways, and despite success in the pilot program, RCV in Utah has seen attacks from politicians afraid of losing their grip on power.

Who’s Involved?

RepresentUs is working with Utah RCV to engage as many RCV supporters as possible to extend/expand the RCV program and oppose its ending.
