Dion Bergeron -- GOP candidate for IN State House District 9 (Michigan City). Dion grew up in Michigan City and believes very strongly in honesty, integrity, and accountability. Witnessing what is going on in our government, Dion can no longer stand by and simply hope it gets better. His goal is to make real progress. For one, Dion supports using RCV for our elections.
WHAT IS RANKED CHOICE VOTING?
RCV is a simple upgrade to the ballot. Instead of choosing just one candidate, RCV allows you to rank multiple candidates in the order you prefer them (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so on). This solves a number of long-standing problems in our American political system: the intractability of the two major parties; “spoiler” candidates; candidates who win elections without majority support; negative attack ads; and poor voter turnout and engagement.
As of November 2021, 43 jurisdictions used RCV in their most recent elections, and more than 50 jurisdictions will use RCV in their next election. 2 states (Alaska and Maine) both use RCV for federal elections. And cities like San Francisco, Minneapolis, and New York City all use RCV as well.
