Ranked Choice Voting had a great year here in Kentucky! We began with nothing more than a group of people who have a passion for Ranked Choice Voting and a partnership with Rank the Vote US. The task before us seemed almost impossible. One year later, our organization has a solid foundation and the first Ranked Choice Voting bill has been introduced in Frankfort. We couldn't have done it without you!

Our plans for 2022 are to expand our core team and continue telling Kentucky about the benefits of Ranked Choice Voting. Help us out by volunteering your time, signing up for a monthly donation, and sharing our social media posts with your friends.

The Rank the Vote Kentucky Blog

by Ken Carpenter, Executive Director

Divisiveness is all I've ever known.

I am a millennial, born to a family split in half by partisans, only to marry into another also torn by party affiliation. Especially after recent election cycles, it’s been tragically painful to watch households, neighbors, and friends driven apart because of the ideological tribalism instilled by our two-party politics.

Rank the Vote Kentucky advocates for Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) because we believe RCV can unite Kentuckians, empower voters’ choice, and ensure those who speak for us in Frankfort are elected with majority support. We are not-for-profit, all-volunteer, and strictly non-partisan.
