RaBIT is a grassroots, non-partisan advocacy group working to bring ranked ballots to Toronto's elections. We're a group of volunteers looking to make Toronto's elections more fair, and to have more people's voices represented at Toronto City Council.

Ranked ballots are a simple change to how we vote that can have a big impact: having more choices at the ballot box means more voters' voices get represented at City Council, our elections are more fair, the campaigns are more friendly, and the range of candidates who run (and win!) are more diverse.

The Restore Local Choice Campaign

Did you know that ranked ballot elections are not permitted in Ontario right now? In 2020, the Ontario government took away municipalities' choice to decide for themselves if they wanted to use ranked ballots in their elections, after London, Ontario had already completed their first one. 

We want the provincial government to bring back a municipality's right to choose.

Toronto Went Back to the Polls

On June 26, Toronto voters returned to the ballot booth to vote for a new mayor in a special by-election. We asked mayoral candidates to take our pledge to support ranked ballots.
