2009 NYC candidates

We are currently in the process of compiling a list of all known candidates in elections for Mayor, Public Advocate, and City Council.  We will then contact each candidate and inquire about their stances on IRV.  Once we know a candidate’s stance, we will list it on this page.  We will not make endorsements until we’ve given each candidate a fair chance to respond.

At this early stage, not all intended candidates have formally declared for office.  If you are aware of any additional candidates that we did not list, please let us know.
