Choice voting saw two huge wins on election day - the first time in 53 years that voters of a U.S. jurisdiction decided to elect their officials using a proportional voting method.
The Davis (CA) advisory Measure L won with 55% across the city. Meanwhile, the Minneapolis Better Ballot Campaign won implementation by 65%. Voters there will use choice voting to elect at-large park board commissioners, library board trustees and estimate and taxation board members.
The campaigns did a fantastic job.
