In this episode of RCV Clips, Karen Brinson Bell and Connie Schmidt get back to basics: covering why RCV is used, where it’s used, how voters mark their ballots, how voters learn about RCV, and how RCV gets counted.
Visuals always help, so here’s some example ballots, example voter education, and illustrations of how single-winner RCV gets counted.
