Who supports ranked choice voting?

A:

The nonpartisan League of Women Voters of Maine has led the effort to enact ranked choice voting in Maine. The Portland Press Herald, the Brunswick Times Record, the Belfast Republican Journal and other Maine newspapers have editorialized in support of ranked choice voting. Hundreds of business, labor, civic, and faith leaders including Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Greens, and Libertarians from across Maine have endorsed ranked choice voting. Citizen empowerment groups like Common Cause and FairVote also support ranked choice voting. Prominent backers of ranked choice voting include 2008 presidential rivals Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain, who said that ranked choice voting “will lead to good government because voters will elect leaders who have the support of a majority. Elected leaders will be more likely to listen to all.”
