Ranked-choice voting is now easy and free for anyone. RCV123's paper ballots are easy to use for in-person voting, scan with your iPhone, and audit later if needed.
The RCV123 app quickly sets up, prints and scans paper ranked-choice voting ballots, and calculate results instantly.
Ranked-choice voting is a great way to find a consensus on any group decision.
Though the RCV123 app is only for non-government elections at the community level, scanned paper ballots are used in 95% of official voting machines in the US. So holding a DIY vote with RCV123 is a great way to educate citizens about official ranked-choice voting.
Paper ballots are common-sense to audit. They can be re-scanned by anyone as many times as they like, or hand-counted.
RCV123 is not a secure voting system. Each group needs to decide their own process for who gets ballots, how they are turned in, who does the scanning, amount of vote anonymity, and how ballots get stored, etc.
RCV123 only provides a printing, scanning and calculation tool for you to use according to the overall election policies and practices decided by your group.
RCV123 is an IRS 501(c)(3) educational non-profit. Our mission is to educate citizens about ranked-choice voting. Supporters believe RCV is easy to use, captures voter's true intentions, opens the process to new candidates and coalitions and results in more consensus outcomes.
Ranked-choice voting is used to elect government leaders statewide in Maine, as well as in NYC, Minneapolis, St. Paul, San Francisco, Oakland and several other cities, counties and towns, and is growing rapidly. It is also used for some offices in Ireland, Australia and other nations.
Give it a try in your next group election ... or use RCV just to decide where to get lunch for the next big office meeting.
Updated for iOS 14.6. Fixed issue with saving a new election.
Ratings and Reviews
Great tool to educate people on RCV
The biggest problem with RCV is that people are confused on how it works (NYC Mayoral Race). This app helps people understand the process. Most Political Scientist laud the method as a means to lower the threat of continued polarization. We need to support this method whenever and wherever possible. Great tool to educate and do micro-examples (beer or wine tastings?).
So grateful this app exists!
I love rank choice voting and think it’s the best thing to happen to democracy since it caught on. Doing a little civics lesson / evangelizing this Christmas and introducing rank choice voting to the family to chose the best homemade gift (an annual competition). I would give 5 stars if there wasn’t a max number of candidates (I can’t add more than 10). The app is simple and efficient, but I’m worried next year we may have more than 10 entries!
