The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will vote on Tuesday, July 10, on a measure that would ask the voters in November 2012 if they wish to curtail the use of Ranked Choice Voting in Mayoral elections. Public comment is permitted, and the discussion will start at approximately 2:45 p.m. One measure would eliminate Ranked Choice Voting for Mayoral races and substitute a September election. If no one got 65%, there would be a run-off in November.
Another proposal would make the same change, but for all citywide executive positions, not just Mayor. A third proposal would retain RCV for all office, but for Mayor only, if no one got a majority of First Choice votes in November, there would be a December run-off.
