Ranked Choice Voting
Why Ranked Choice Voting?
In November of 2006, the voters of Pierce County approved Instant Runoff Voting, which provides that the election of all county officials, except judges and the Prosecuting Attorney be conducted using instant runoff voting. All qualifying candidates will appear directly on the general election ballot.
Please note that from this point forward this method of voting will be referred to as 'Ranked Choice Voting'. The first Ranked Choice Voting election was held on November 4, 2008.
Blue Ribbon Review Panel
The Pierce County, established a Blue Ribbon review panel to provide input and feedback as the Auditor's office developed the voting protocols necessary for carrying out RCV elections in Pierce County. The panel met in 2007.
