Cal RCV worked in coalition with a number of voting rights and good government groups to advocate for Alameda County to form an Elections Commission to oversee the registrar of voters and help avoid future errors with the elections process. Thanks to Cal RCV's supporters (who turned out for public comment at multiple Board of Supervisors meetings), the coalition's efforts, and the leadership of County Supervisor Keith Carson, the commission was established in June, 2023. We're proud to be part of the effort to ensure all elections -- not just Ranked Choice elections -- are conducted correctly and transparently.
