The city of Cary has become the first North Carolina city to take advantage of a new state law allowing cities to use instant runoff voting for local elections. Cary will use IRV this October to for mayoral and city council elections, eliminating the need for a separate high-cost, low-turnout runoff. Other cities in the state are expected to follow Cary's lead in the coming weeks.
