November 16, 2018

Conservatives reading this Washington Post report on the first instant Ranked-Choice Vote (RVC) resulting in the Democrats picking up an extra Congressional seat in Maine may be surprised to hear a judge appointed by Trump provided the strong decision allowing the process.

June 8, 2018

Despite the poorly written headline in the Hill (Top finisher in San Francisco mayor’s race trails due to ranked voting), this story and the comments from readers give a great example of why all states should adopt ranked choice voting.
