NY Times Tackles Ranked Choice Voting

Today's Editorial in the New York Times discusses Maine's coming state-wide election that will utilize Ranked Choice Voting. Observers have noted a kindler, gentler campaign in which candidates tell voters that it's okay to vote for them as their 2nd choice. This means that a candidate will go out of their way not to antagonize potential voters of their closest rivals, leading to more positive campaigns.

The editorial also gives a shout out to multimember districts.

Perhaps these reform concepts are becoming more mainstream. Let's continue to promote them!
