Strategy

For Ranked Choice Voting to become a reality in New Hampshire, we need to do a lot of work. There are three main teams that you can join to help: People, Money, and Influence 

 

People 

Grassroots supporters are everything.  If the legislature can see widespread support for RCV in NH, they'll pass a bill bringing RCV to NH!  We need at least 50 people from each representative district. Those 50 people will make sure their representative knows to support an RCV bill. We need 10,000 to 25,000 NH RCV supporters for that. That number also factors in 1000 supporters for each state senator.  To reach that, we need your help!  We need you to help reach out to people you know to help us build a grassroots movement.  We are also clipboarding at events.  Sign up on our "Volunteer" page, and make sure to mention that you want to help us reach out to people! 

 

Money 

Fundraising is how we support all of our work and everything we do. We're still a 100% volunteer organization.  We need funds to keep growing and be successful.  Money from fundraising is what’s paying for the website you're on right now; it also pays for ads and our supplies for in-person outreach and list building. Fundraising is how we gain money to raise awareness to reach our goals. We need more funds if we’re going to get the whole state on board! When we do grassroots outreach, we will also ask if people are willing to donate. After that, we need your help reaching out to those new donors! We also need to work on applying for grants and finding bigger individual donors. If you want to help us fund our work so we can democratize NH, sign up on our "Volunteer" page, and indicate that you would like to help us fuel our efforts! 

 

Influence

We need confident and amazing speakers to go to local events and help raise awareness.  We need these people to help make the case to NH why Ranked Choice Voting is a system that needs to be implemented. We also need help reaching out to get endorsements from as many people and organizations as possible. If you want to explain to others why we need to change our voting process so it represents more people, along with ensuring that every vote counts and the candidate with the most support is elected, then we need you. We need people who are comfortable getting in front of large crowds. In addition, this group will work on letters to the Editor, and reaching out to the press for interviews and getting other related coverage. If you're the type of person who thinks they can represent RCV, this is the place for you!
