More Choice San Diego Committee

Steering Committee

Giving every voter the chance to express their complete views honestly at the ballot box is an essential step to achieving fair and equitable representation for us all.

If we want governments to be more effective and efficient in addressing the many problems our society faces we need to change how we elect governments. I became involved in election reform because I see that the structure of our current winner takes all plurality method of voting impedes progress by driving polarization and obstructing compromise toward possible solutions.

We have 100 years of history advocating for voter empowerment, and this election reform empowers voters to exercise a more expansive voting option while also preserving the processes that are familiar to them. It enables voters full participation in the Primary and and also allows them to rank candidates in the General Election.

Our current election system incentivizes division. Top4RCV will help voters, candidates, and elected officials by incentivizing better and more unifying representation.

The More Choice SD proposal will give voters more choices, empower more candidates, and make representatives more accountable to more people in a way that ensures that important community voices and issues are not marginalized by the larger political narrative and forces.

Pedro Hernandez is the son of immigrant agricultural workers. His experiences growing up in Watsonville, serving as a student trustee for the local school board, set in motion his commitment to community empowerment at a young age.

Once I saw that this measure corrected the problem of too many people being elected having the support of less than 50% of the voters, I knew that this would be an improvement. As an added advantage, this type of voting encourages less negative campaigning. That will have a positive effect on voters who are so tired of negative advertising during election cycles. It should be a win for candidates, voters and our city.

Top 4 RCV is about the VOTER, the chance for all to participate in a first round primary and the opportunity to choose from among not two, but four candidates, giving voters a greater voice in the election process. Top 4 RCV will also allow for a more level playing field and greater opportunity for CANDIDATES as well, including for more women and people of color. And THAT will translate into greater representative government.

I’ve come to find, our political system is broken; and our families' futures depend on us to reform it. Our grassroots San Diego coalition brings preeminent local and national voter advocacy organizations together. We intend to help return the power to the voters in the General Election, and I am proud to help them, by bringing Top-4-Ranked Choice Voting to San Diego city.
