I support Ranked Choice Voting for several reasons: In elections with more than two candidates, it eliminates the need for run-off elections which can be costly and contentious. This system encourages each voter to become familiar with more than their single choice for a position. With greater knowledge about each candidate, voters are better able to “order” (or “rank”) their selections. It seems to me a more democratic approach to elections because the eventual winner will have gotten the majority of votes.

I hope that our local legislators as well as our local voters will support this system at the polls in November and through the process in Augusta.
