Environmentalist group says yes to San Juan County Charter Amendment Proposition 3

Submitted by FairVote Washington.

The Washington Conservation Voters is calling on voters in San Juan County to join the statewide and nationwide movement for ranked-choice voting by voting YES on San Juan County Charter Amendment 3.

Zachary Pullin of the Washington Conservation Voters said, “We know that Washingtonians care about our environment, but problems arise when politicians aren’t as accountable to us as they should be. Implementing ranked-choice voting is an exciting and proven way to empower voters to be heard on the issues that matter to them the most.”

Lisa Ayrault of FairVote Washington said, “We’re thrilled that the Washington Conservation Voters has endorsed ranked-choice voting! This is a simple, proven upgrade to our elections that could save time and money in San Juan County. Ranked-choice voting is already used in over 50 places across the country and voters overwhelmingly like it.”

Ranked-choice voting gives you the option to vote for candidates in the order you prefer: 1st choice, 2nd choice, 3rd choice, and so on. If your favorite can’t win, your vote counts for your next choice.
