New York City voters will be using the new ranked-choice voting system for the June party primary elections for Mayor, Comptroller, Public Advocate, Borough President, and City Council. Voters will be able to rank up to five candidates in order of preference, and ranked-choice voting eliminates the runoff elections that used to occur in some cases for citywide offices. Watch the show below from Gotham Gazette and Manhattan Neighborhood Network for what you need to know about ranked-choice voting, featuring Gotham Gazette editor Ben Max, Brigid Bergin of WNYC radio, Jeff Mays of The New York Times, and Allie Swatek of the Campaign Finance Board, which is tasked with voter education about RCV.
