City of Virginia Beach and Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service Release Findings from Election System Community Engagement Efforts

Outcomes and Recommendations Related to the Local Election System Available to Review

The Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia briefed the Virginia Beach City Council on Tuesday on the results of a months-long campaign to collect resident input about their experience with the 10-1 election system.

The briefing included an account of the community listening sessions held in March and April, resident preferences for how future elections should be conducted, the results of probability and open-source surveys conducted between April and May and an expert legal review of election system options.

The complete findings and PowerPoint Presentation have been published in full on the City's resident engagement portal, SpeakUpVB.com/VBelections (under "Documents").

A recording of the presentation can be found on the City's YouTube channel, YouTube.com/accessvirginiabeach. Additionally, it will be re-broadcast on VBTV on Thursday, June 22, at 7 p.m. and Friday, June 23, at 9 a.m. on Cox channel 48 and Verizon channel 45.
