The suspense is over. Today, the Maine Secretary of State announced that he has certified the requisite number of signatures to restore the use of ranked choice voting in the June primary. Mainers  will be casting their ballots using ranked choice voting in the June 12 party primaries, making Maine the first state in the nation to use ranked choice voting in a statewide election.

To support the implementation of ranked choice voting (RCV) for the June 12th primary elections, the League of Women Voters of Maine is launching a new project, MAINE USES RANKED CHOICE VOTING.

In partnership with Maine Citizens for Clean Elections , MAINE USES RANKED CHOICE VOTING  aims to make sure that voters have the information they need to use ranked choice voting in the upcoming election.

Jill Ward, President, League of Women Voters of Maine, said, “Elections matter. Let’s get this right. As we look to June, let’s work to preserve our faith in the democratic process. Let’s make sure that Maine’selections continue to inspire public confidence through their accessibility, transparency and accuracy. ”

MAINE USES RANKED CHOICE VOTING  will collaborate with civic groups, schools, social organizations, and service clubs to help ensure that members and stakeholders have the voting information they need to participate fully and effectively in the primary.

MAINE USES RANKED CHOICE VOTING  will also work with election administrators to ensure that the election meets or exceeds the highest standards of accuracy, transparency, and security.

Finally, MAINE USES RANKED CHOICE VOTING  will work with candidates and others involved in campaigns to make sure that they have the information needed to develop effective strategies from running campaign using Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) and for playing their role in educating voters .

LWVME and the MAINE USES RANKED CHOICE VOTING  project are entirely nonpartisan and do not endorse candidates or political parties. Through separate projects, LWVME and MCCE have endorsed the people’s veto on the June election. However, the Maine Uses Ranked Choice Voting project is exclusively educational, is not involved in the people’s veto campaign, and will not advocate for or against the people’s veto question.
