June 2022


We logged out of our May Open Call with a renewed sense of purpose and ready to do the hard work of growing a grass-roots movement.  In this stage of our movement, our primary mission is to share information about RCV with our fellow Kentuckians, identify & connect with potential partner organizations, and build relationships with legislators, policy makers & their staff.

We’re on the right path but we need your help to move forward.  It takes people and money to do this.
Invite your friends and neighbors to our next Open Call

Thursday, July 7th, 7:30 pm eastern - MARK YOUR CALENDAR!

We'll provide a short introduction to Ranked Choice Voting, share our plans to bring RCV to Kentucky, and have an open mic time for everyone to ask questions and give input.  Watch your email for a direct link to the event.

Volunteer your time

A successful movement is only as strong as its members.  Whether you have 30 minutes a week or 30 minutes a day to devote to Rank the Vote Kentucky, your contribution is needed!  Tell us your skills and we'll work together to figure out how you can contribute.
