Learn About Ranked Choice Voting Tonight

For the first time in San Leandro, ranked choice (instant runoff) voting will be used to decide which of five candidates becomes the next Mayor in the November 2010 election. If you have questions about ranked choice voting (RCV), there will be a meeting tonight at All Saints Church where you can learn about RCV and have your questions answered.

The meeting starts at 7pm on Wednesday September 29 (tonight). All Saints Church is located at 911 Dowling Avenue in San Leandro, next to Roosevelt Elementary School.

For those who can't make it tonight, you can learn about RCV from a Registrar of Voters representative at the Democratic Headquarters at 7pm on Tuesday, October 5. The Democratic Headquarters is located at 15069 E. 14th Street in San Leandro.

If you prefer using your computer, there is an online webinar offered by the Alameda County Registrar of Voters on Friday, October 8 at 3pm. Click here to register for the webinar.

The Registrar will also hold presentations on RCV on Saturday, October 9, 2010, at the San Leandro Library at 1pm and the Marina Community Center at 11:30am on Tuesday, October 12, 2010. The San Leandro Library is located at 300 Estudillo Avenue and the Marina Community Center is located at 15301 Wicks Boulevard.

All of these events are free. More information about RCV can be found at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters web site. A mockup demonstration of RCV can be found at the DemoChoice web site. There are also some helpful online videos:
