DSC Weekly 15 Nov 2022 – The Dynamics of Ranked Voting
A Ranked Choice Voting system takes a different approach. In a Ranked Choice, candidates from any party (or no party) can stand for election. Voters rank their preferences, and the top three candidates then go onto a second election, where the top vote receiver wins the election. A referendum passed in this latest election cycle makes Nevada a Ranked Choice state, joining Alaska and Maine. Significantly, these states all have had a history of independent candidates.
