Two Bills Proposing Ranked Choice Voting Pass Virginia House of Delegates!

On February 6th, HB 506 proposing to allow ranked choice voting in Arlington County elections, passed the House floor vote with 68 votes. As a locality specific bill, it needed 66 votes to make it through. The bill is Co-Patroned by Delegate Hope and Delegate Hudson.


Today (February 7th, 2020) HB 1103 passed the House of Delegates with 57 yays and 42 nays. This bill proposes pilot use of ranked choice voting in town councils and boards of supervisors elections, for any locality that chooses to implement it. The Chief Patron of this bipartisan bill is Delegate Hudson with fourteen other co-patrons.


Both bills will now crossover to the Senate to be voted on in committees. Stay tuned for updated talking points and further instruction on how to best help advance these bills...


Cheers!
