FAQ's

I'm a student, can I register in Berkeley?  Yes! 

If you sleep in Berkeley you can vote in Berkeley.  In California, students may register either where they live while attending school, or at home, the only rule is you can only vote in one place.  Even if you are not a "California Resident" for UC tuition purposes, you can register to vote in California. 

How does Ranked Choice Voting work?
RCV lets you pick a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice.  Designed to avoid the problem where 3rd party voters have to pick a "lesser evil" to avoid splitting the vote, RCV works like this:

"If a candidate receives a majority (50%+1) of the first-choice votes cast for that office, that candidate will be elected. However, if no candidate receives a majority of the first-choice votes cast, an elimination process begins. The candidate who received the fewest first-choice votes is eliminated. Next, each vote cast for that candidate will be transferred to the voter's next-ranked choice among the remaining candidates. This elimination process will continue until one candidate receives a majority and is deemed the winner."  More details here
