Ranked Choice Voting

This year, for the first time, Moab will participate in the State of Utah's Ranked Choice Voting Pilot Program. The 2021 election will be conducted by mail using a ranked choice voting ballot.

About Ranked Choice Voting

Ranked choice voting is a nonpartisan electoral reform that gives voters the freedom to rank candidates in order of choice.

Voters rank candidates in order of preference.

Instead of choosing one candidate, ranked choice voting allows voters to rank all candidates according to their preference (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.).

How Ranked Choice Voting Works

In each round of ranked choice voting, the candidate with the lowest number of votes is eliminated. When a voter's number one choice is eliminated, their second choice is included in the count for the second round. This process continues until the final round.
