Support Better Local Elections MC 13-22 Enabling Voting Methods for Montgomery County is an important bill to empower the county to evaluate and implement new voting methods, if desired. This bill is about: Voter Empowerment - Voters can better express their preferences with a better voting method like ranked choice voting. It eliminates strategic voting and voting for the ‘lesser of two evils”. Local Innovation & Responsiveness - Giving jurisdictions the flexibility to use additional voting methods creates more responsive governments to electoral changes to improve voter experience. Empower Local Government - the bill enables Montgomery County to determine and select the best voting method for local elections. It does not prescribe a voting method to use.
