Electoral Reform (II)

A couple Minnesota Republicans write to MinnPost to explain how Instant Runoff Voting will help all the political parties in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Ranked-choice voting is a tested and successful system used in cities across America and in democracies around the world, including Ireland, Northern Ireland and Australia. It had a successful rollout last year in Minneapolis and is on track for implementation in St. Paul. It's time to take this idea to the state level for consideration and — we hope — adoption.  Such a development would be good for all parties and citizens regardless of their political leanings.
