Yesterday, I wrote to my state Senator, advocating for Ranked Choice Voting. Today, I attended a mock election held by Voter Choice Massachusetts and heard their latest pitch. (We voted on beer at brewery, naturally.) A key talking point: Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. Maine enacted ranked choice voting a year ago and it’s already had an impact. In the mid-term election last month, Bruce Poliquin garnered the most votes but did not get a majority. Using ranked choice voting, the independent candidates’ voters’ second choices were then factored in. The winner became Jared Golden, not Bruce Poliquin, providing an instant case study for how ranked choice voting can change an election.
