Statewide Strategy Meeting: Columbia - Better Ballot SC

Are you interested in becoming a part of the voting reform effort in South Carolina? Let's expand instant runoff voting (also known as ranked choice voting) in South Carolina and give voters More Voice and More Choice.

We've been working to educate voters about this common sense upgrade to the way that we currently vote. Join us to Better the South Carolina Ballot by RSVPing for our monthly statewide strategy meeting.

We're going hybrid! Columbia's meeting will be located in the conference room at Canalside Apartments (383 Taylor St, Columbia). Prepare for a fun, informative time. We will begin the meeting virtually with a statewide recap and then break into local groups. Please arrive 15 minutes early to situate yourself and to chat with fellow supporters. Can't make it in person? That's alright too. You can join your local group virtually!

If you are attending in person, we will be holding a food drive. Please bring canned or other dried goods to donate to Harvest Hope Food Bank. Click here to learn about what foods to donate.

 

Curious how it works? It's as easy as 1, 2, 3! Join the call and we can go more in depth, but here are the basics:

When voters go to the polls, instead of voting for one, they rank their candidates. This gives voters More Voice and More Choice. If a voter's top choice has no path to victory, their vote is transferred to their second choice. This ensures majority support while eliminating costly runoffs. It also has some other great benefits:

  • Reduces polarization and mudslinging
  • Eliminates the spoiler effect and vote splitting
  • Increases representation
