Next November the citizens of Maine will have the opportunity to choose ranked choice voting as the way we elect our state officials. The prospect alarms extremist politicians – their propaganda machines are already at work.
We can expect them to be alarmed – ranked choice voting threatens their power.
It threatens their power because RCV will force the political parties to nominate candidates who appeal to the center.
If you are a political centrist, as I am, join me in voting for RCV next November.
