Better Elections Are Possible

Alexis: It's important that my son knows his voice always matters.Voters in cities and states across the country are turning to ranked choice voting to give themselves - and future generations - better options. That’s what Alexis W. of Maine shared with us.

"It’s important that my son knows his voice always matters – that he does have a say in a democracy that is of the people, by the people, and for the people. That’s why I gathered, sorted, and filed thousands of petitions for ranked choice voting over the past several months. Ranked choice voting won’t fix all of the problems with our politics, but it will put more power back in the hands of voters. It will make politicians more accountable to people by encouraging candidates to appeal to more voters to win elections."

The counting and recounting of ballots in the 2010 elections is nearly over. In a final wrap-up blog from the Non-Majority Rule desk, we review the role of so-called “spoilers” in a few more very close elections. We also offer a preview of what’s in store in 2012, starting with the wide-open contest for the Republican nomination, and highlight media attention to a city offering a better means to elect winners: Oakland, with its ranked choice system of instant runoff voting.
