San Leandro Does About Face on Ranked Voting

In a move that could end up costing Oakland a lot of money, the San Leandro City Council has partially backtracked on ranked choice voting. The Hayward Daily Review reports that one San Leandro Councilwoman Diana Souza changed her vote when the new voting format came up for final passage earlier this week, resulting in a 3-3 tie. The measure will now come back for another vote on April 19, when the council’s seventh member will be on hand. If San Leandro chooses not to implement ranked choice voting this year, then it likely will end up costing the City of Oakland hundreds of thousands of dollars.
