Georgetown University undergrads in an online vote on Friday, October 27 elected their student Senate using instant runoff voting. It was their first election with the new voting system - and a complete success.
Students ratified IRV two weeks earlier as part of a larger reform package that included expanding their assembly size from 12 to 23. With their adoption of the system, Hoyas joined a growing number of students at prestigious universities who guarantee majority winners in a single round of voting.
