A few years ago the Utah State Legislature launched a pilot program for cities to test Ranked-Choice Voting. Every city is required to decide by April of every voting year whether they will use RCV.
I would like to start doing some voter education.
In late August, the West Jordan City Council debated whether to use the new voting system in next year’s election.
In her presentation, Tangee Sloan, West Jordan City Recorder, said, “West Jordan has opted out of RCV in 2019 and 2021. If we opt in [next year], I would like to start doing some voter education.”
Bluffdale, Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Midvale, Millcreek, Riverton, Salt Lake City, Sandy and South Salt Lake had RCV for their 2021 elections.
If the City Council decides to use RCV, the City Recorder, Sloan, will be in charge of public education. Some of the ideas are: updates to the city website, flyers at events, host town halls and seminars and post on social media.
