There is now a push to enact Ranked Choice Voting, or RCV, in North Carolina.

The nonprofit organization Better Ballot held a meeting in East Asheville on Saturday to discuss what exactly Ranked Choice Voting is.

NORTH CAROLINA SENATE BACKS LEGALIZING POT FOR MEDICAL USE

Those with the nonprofit explained that RCV would mean voters would rank their candidates and if their first choice lost, it would go to the second and so on.

RCV is currently available in other areas like New York City, California and Alaska.

“Most people want to decrease polarization in the state in politics," Daniel Kemp, president of Better Ballot North Carolina said. "Currently in North Carolina, you can win without 50% of the vote. With RCV, there’s no way you can win unless there’s 50% plus one. It allows a broader coalition of people to elect their representative.”
