Maya Wiley Looks at Advantages of Ranked-Choice Voting

Former Fellow Maya Wiley (’92) authored an op-ed in the New York Daily News advocating for a ballot initiative that has since passed, whereby voters, instead of choosing just one candidate, will rank their top five candidates in local primary and special elections (“Ranked-Choice Voting Will Help Underrepresented New Yorkers,” Nov. 4). Explaining how the change would increase diversity in elected officials, Maya said, “We have a chance not only to revolutionize the way we vote, but to change what our politics looks like.”
