Fix Politics! Bring Ranked Voting to Hamilton

The way we elect people... is a problem.
Sure, we've got a long, long history with the Old Election System (first-past-the-post), but there's just no spark.
The magic is gone. Was it ever really there at all?
At any rate, we need to talk.
The election system is old, outdated, and leads to shenanigans like strategic voting and vote-splitting.
Instead of being forced to vote for people we don't really like to keep other people we reeaaaaally don't like from winning, wouldn't it be better to just vote for people we actually like?
Wouldn't it make sense?
We need an update.
We need a better way, and, well, this is really hard.
Oh God... I might cry.
Hey? Old Election System?
We're not quite sure how to tell you this, but....
Ranked Voting stole our hearts OK?! Ranked Voting is way way WAY better!
In this time of political uncertainty, we need this more than ever.
We're not doing this because we don't like you Old Election System.
We're doing this for us!
Seriously, it isn't you.
(it's totally not us)
123Hamilton and Make Your Vote Count! (MYVC) have teamed up to fight for Ranked Voting in the Hammer.
And it's gonna be Rankier, aaaaand Votey-er than ever before.
Sign your name, and together we'll tell Hamilton City Council to do the right thing and make Ranked Voting happen.
Don't worry, the Old Election System will be okay without us, it will eventually learn to love again.
But us? Well us and Ranked Voting, we're going to be a thing and it'll be great <3
