On May 1st, 8 different propositions will be on the ballot, including Prop E, which has to do with ranked choice voting.
Did you know there’s an election in May? Austinites will have the chance to vote on 8 different ballot propositions.
Freaking out because this is the first you’re hearing about it? Don’t worry, we’ll be releasing election guides on each of the propositions (A – H) until early voting begins on April 19th.
Plus, in partnership with the Hispanic Austin Leadership (HAL) Program of the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, this year’s guides will be available in both English and Spanish!
PS – For Prop E, we released our election guide in two parts. Part 1 covered the basics of ranked choice voting and how it works. In Part 2, we’ll share the arguments for and against it, as well as how it could be implemented in Austin.
