A New Way to Vote is Coming to Las Cruces!

It's called Ranked Choice Voting!

This fall, Las Cruces voters will elect a Mayor, City Councilors in Districts 1, 2, 4 and Presiding Municipal Judge using Ranked Choice Voting, or RCV.

  • With RCV, you get to rank the candidates from favorite to least favorite.
  • For a candidate to win, they must receive a majority of the vote (50% +1).
  • If a candidate gets a majority of first preference votes, they win!
  • If no candidate gets a majority of first preference votes, the candidate with the fewest first preference votes is eliminated. Voters who picked this candidate as their #1 now have their 2nd preference vote count. If a candidate gets a majority, they win!
