About Ranked Choice Voting in Arlington
In July 2020, the Virginia General Assembly passed a bill allowing localities to implement RCV in elections of members of a County Board of Supervisors or a City Council. After public engagement in Fall 2022 on the possible use of Ranked Choice Voting, the Board adopted the pilot use of RCV in the 2023 County Board primary election.
