Background Analysis

The 2017 Municipal Election was the City’s third use of the alternative Ranked-Choice Voting (RCV) methodology, following its successful implementation in 2009. A series of process improvements, including ordinance amendments, based on experiences and lesson learned, further streamlined the administration of the 2013 election, resulting in faster publication of election results. Staff has submitted a report summarizing the 2017 Municipal Election, which is attached.
