RCV could become a reality in Westbrook: Westbrook voters have an important referendum question on their local ballot for the November 2 election. The question will ask them to vote on whether or not to implement Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) for city elections. If the measure passes, the City Charter will be amended, and RCV will be used for Mayoral, City Council, and School Committee races. To help spread the word and register new voters, we're canvassing throughout Westbrook. See our events calendar.

Tune in on October 5, from 9:30 AM - noon.
