LWV Oregon Endorsed HB 2004
The League of Women Voters Oregon recently endorsed Oregon House Bill 2004 which establishes Rank Choice Voting (RCV) elections for all statewide and federal offices, for both primary and general elections with three or more candidates. It also provides a local option for cities and counties to use RCV elections and helps to ensure standardized implementation for county clerks.
As the sponsors point out, this particular bill does not establish open primaries, nor does it include the Oregon Legislature.
According to LWVOR study reports, Rank Choice Voting is one of the best methods for leading to more reflective outcomes and improving representation. It also has proven success – having been used or adopted in over 60 jurisdictions across the U.S., including four in our own state.
