Ranked Choice Voting Maryland (RCV Maryland) is a non-partisan, grassroots coalition seeking to build a more effective, representative democracy through ranked choice voting elections. We're seeking to modernize Maryland’s voting systems at the city, county, and state level. RCV Maryland formed to galvanize public and political support for better voting methods after a history of crowded primaries, a lack of fair representation, and low plurality winners.

RCV Maryland is a 501(c)3 and donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

What is Ranked Choice Voting?

In ranked choice voting elections, the candidate who reflects the views of the widest number of voters wins. Even in crowded fields, similar candidates can compete without splitting votes. Whether Republican, Democrat, independent or third-party, voters never have to worry about the “spoiler effect.”
