A warm thanks to all of the candidates that responded to our questionnaires. We surveyed all of the city council, college board, and school board candidates. The results are very exciting. A majority of the city council candidates responded, and the replies are very encouraging. You can find a summary of the council candidates' responses here. Two of the candidates for Santa Monica College Board of Trustees also gave us very encouraging responses. The responses from the college board candidates are summarized here. Based on these results, we believe that the city of Santa Monica will be ready to seriously consider Choice Voting after November, with the possibility of using it for the first time in 2006 if there is enough demonstration of public support for the new system. Also, the Santa Monica College Board of Trustees will likely be in a good position to vote on a resolution calling on the California state legislature to give college boards the authority to implement Choice Voting. Yay!
