The City of Portland is excited for the new voter education program launching in June! At events this summer, you'll find impartial, non-partisan voter education materials on district-based elections and ranked-choice voting. This new, easy-to-use voting method will be used to elect the City’s new legislative council and executive mayor in the November 2024 election. 

Our voter education team is composed of City Transition Team staff, City Auditor Elections staff, and Multnomah County Elections staff, as well as national experts in ranked-choice voting education.

Hands-on practice with ranked-choice voting is just one tool the City is using to ensure that every Portland voter can express their vote. Come visit us at the events listed below this summer to learn more about ranked-choice voting.
