Ontario Government: Respect the request from Toronto City Councillors for ranked ballots

Toronto City Council has formally asked the province for permission to use ranked ballots for municipal elections. We're calling on all provincial parties to respect the wishes of Toronto's elected City Councillors, and to support local democracy.

The Liberals, New Democrats, Conservatives and Greens ALL use runoff voting to choose their own leaders and candidates.  If it's good enough for them - it's good enough for Toronto.

The campaign for municipal ranked ballots is a multi-partisan effort, and now is the time to move it forward!  It's a small, simple change that would make Toronto's elections more fair, diverse, inclusive and friendly.
