Rave Reviews for IRV

Cary (NC) on October 9th became the latest city to implement instant runoff voting (IRV) with great success. The city avoided an expensive runoff, and an exit poll showed three-to-one support for IRV over traditional runoffs and 96% understanding of the system. Three North Carolina dailies called for expanding IRV elections in their state. Meanwhile, IRV is on the ballot in several new cities and counties this fall, garnering newspaper support.
