Who We Are.

Made up of thousands of citizens and activists across the state, the Yes On 2 campaign is a non-partisan, politically diverse organization dedicated to educating the Massachusetts public about the need for Ranked Choice Voting. After spending several years advocating for new ways to empower Massachusetts voters, we successfully placed a question on the 2020 ballot that would bring Ranked Choice Voting to Massachusetts state and federal elections starting in 2022. Now, we are asking you to vote YES on Question 2, on or by November 3rd, 2020. Share with your friends and family too, why you are voting YES!
