My name is Katherine and I’m Co-Chair of the Ranked Ballot Initiative of Toronto, or RaBIT for short. We’re a dynamic and dedicated group of volunteers trying to bring a small, simple change to our municipal elections for fairer results that accurately reflect the preferences of Torontonians. We have hundreds of supporters across the city, including Mayor John Tory.
It's a truly exciting time for RaBIT. The province of Ontario has made legislative changes that allow municipalities to use ranked ballots in electing their officials, and Toronto City Council can now make historic changes towards fairer elections. And we have lots of exciting RaBIT events planned, including town halls, outreach and education events, and fun socials. Whether you're a staunch electoral reformer or just want to chat politics and democracy, there is a place for you with RaBIT. Join our mailing list or sign up to volunteer. Liking RaBIT on Facebook and following us on Twitter @TorontoRaBIT are also great ways to learn more and get up-to-date information.
We can’t make this change alone, and we need people from across the political spectrum and with all sorts of skills and experience. No matter your interest, we hope you'll join RaBIT.
With hope and optimism,
