A slice of democracy: de Blasio’s pizza ballot showcasing ranked-choice voting sparks heated debate


Second only to the mayoral race, perhaps the most contested ranked-choice voting ballot is now the best pizza toppings in New York City.

Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled on Thursday the “Rank Your Pizza” ballot, an interactive challenge to educate New Yorkers on how the new ranked-choice voting (RCV) system works ahead of the June 22 primaries.

De Blasio, whose had his fair share of pizza mishaps, sparked yet another heated debate about the city’s favorite food on social media when he filled out his pizza ballot during his daily press conference.
