Yes on 2: Ranked Choice Voting.

Clean Water Action Massachusetts endorses Ballot Question 2, which would implement ranked choice voting across Massachusetts for state and federal elections. In a ranked choice voting system, voters get to rank all the candidates in a race, rather than choosing just one—meaning that voters no longer have to choose between the candidate they most believe in and the candidate most likely to be elected. This will allow candidates with a greater diversity of views and ideas to be successful, and help more progressive and environmentally-focused candidates make it to Beacon Hill! Democracy is strongest when more voices are heard—vote yes on Ballot Question 2 this November. Learn more about ranked choice voting here
