Try Ranked Choice Voting!

Whenever a race for a single seat has more than two candidates, more than half the voters can strongly oppose the "winner" in a traditional plurality system. To eliminate "spoilers" and embrace voter choice, a growing number of cities and colleges are moving to the instant runoff form of ranked choice voting (RCV). It's used to pick the Best Picture Oscar and is now under serious consideration for statewide elections.

Experience RCV yourself through mock Oscar elections, a great new explanatory video, and more!

  • Over 50 college campuses use RCV, including recent elections at Texas A&M and Duke
