Heritage Action Cheers Mississippi Senate’s Ranked-Choice Voting Ban

Press Releases · Mar 7, 2024

WASHINGTON—Heritage Action, a conservative grassroots organization with two million activists nationwide, including thousands of Mississippians, commended the Mississippi Senate for passing SB 2367, legislation that strengthens election integrity in the state by banning the use of Ranked-Choice Voting (RCV).

Former Kansas Assistant Secretary of State and Heritage Action Director of State Advocacy Catherine Gunsalus released the following statement praising state legislators and encouraging the Mississippi House to pass the bill:

“RCV is about political power and manipulation, not what’s best for voters and election integrity. RCV fundamentally changes the election process and is fraught with problems, making it harder to vote and easier to cheat—the exact opposite of what Mississippians want and deserve. SB 2367 is an important step toward ensuring free, secure, and fair elections in the Magnolia State.

“Heritage Action thanks Secretary Michael Watson and State Senator Jeremy England for leading the charge to protect voters by championing SB 2367. We commend the Mississippi Senate for passing this important legislation and look forward to the State House following suit and Governor Reeves signing the bill soon as possible.”

The Mississippi Senate’s passage of SB 2367 builds on the grassroots momentum to combat the Left’s attempts to implement RCV nationwide. By proactively banning RCV, Mississippi is one of more than a dozen states working on legislation this year to secure elections by making it easier to vote and harder to cheat.

Mississippi currently ranks 16th out of 51 on The Heritage Foundation’s Election Integrity Scorecard.
