That leads us to this week's episode. Today we are discussing Ranked Choice Voting. You may or may not have had exposure to this idea, but it is a very real thing, as cities like Minneapolis and St. Paul (and even the state of Maine!) have tried to go down this road. Does it give more opportunity to less popular parties, or just secure election for the most popular one? Does it allow for more clarity in the election process, or muddy the waters, allowing for questions in the result. Should cities decide how they vote, or the Secretary of State's office? There are so many questions around this practice. I hope that this show will help you form an educated opinion about it.
