On the 2020 Massachusetts ballot being voted in October by mail and on November 3, voters will be asked to answer Question 2: should the state adopt a system known as "ranked-choice voting". We will review the full text of the ballot question, what ranked choice voting would mean for Massachusetts, and what both supporters and detractors say about it.
We will then review several past elections and the outcome that occurred vs what might have happened differently if an alternative voting method had been used. We will look at both MassLandlords' elections (which use non-traditional voting methods) as well as the elections that have changed the course of housing policy in Massachusetts.
Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how the eviction moratorium, rent control, rent cancellation, tenant opportunity to purchase, right to counsel, eviction sealing, and a Fair and Equal Housing Guarantee via surety bonds are all either helped or hindered by our current voting method or the alternative ranked choice voting.
This presentation will be given by Executive Director Doug Quattrochi. This presentation is an independent expenditure without coordination with the Massachusetts Ranked Choice Voting 2020 Committee.
