Voter Reference Foundation joins a coalition of grassroots and public policy organizations in a letter to Wisconsin State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu expressing opposition to Senate Bill 528 and Assembly Bill 563. If adopted, these policies would implement a complex and confusing Ranked-Choice Voting (RCV) system for Wisconsin primary elections. RCV, or “Jungle” style primary elections make voting more difficult, confusing, and reduce transparency, lowering voter confidence.
Quote from Executive Director Gina Swoboda: “Ranked Choice Voting confuses voters and disenfranchises our most vulnerable voters, seniors and new voters. It has been a disastrous experiment that has failed and the voters of the state of Wisconsin deserve better.”
