Executive Director John Pudner On Why Instant Runoffs Will Save Money In Georgia

February 13, 2020

“Instant-runoff most importantly saves Georgia a ton of money. The local option wouldjust be saying the locality can use this instead of a traditional run-off if they want andrunning a run-off kills local budgets. For example, DeKalb County has to pay about$300,000 if they end up having to run a run-off. For Fulton County, it’s $1.1 million andfor Cobb County, it’s almost $300,000. So for a lot of these localities, especially smallerones, run-offs are a real budget breaker. If they […]

Double-Check Instant Runoff Voting Could be First Step for Several States

August 2, 2019

For many reasons, Take Back Our Republic is a strong supporter of Instant Runoffs (also called Ranked Choice Voting). For states that currently have runoffs,  it can eliminate the need for voters to return to the polls almost two months later for a runoff to save money.

We truly believe […]

The issue, installing traffic cameras in school zones, has some merit- although the logistics drew some concern. Nevertheless, HOW the legislation passed has certainly raised eyebrows. As with any issue where government spends money, someone was […]

July 13, 2017

Statement by Take Back Our Republic’s John Pudner on Federal Election Commission Meeting on alleged foreign interference in American elections   As an American citizen and voter, I am stunned by the amount of media coverage and government resources that are being spent chasing the question of whether Russia influenced the 2016 election.   I think many of my fellow Americans would agree with my perspective: our elections have already been so thoroughly influenced by special interests and Big Money […]
