Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) is a method of voting that eliminates the problems found in plurality and runoff elections. Voters rank the candidates on their ballots and the runoff occurs instantly. IRV eliminates the "spoiler" problem, ensures majority support for the winning candidate, saves taxpayer money, promotes higher voter turnout and discourages mud-slinging campaigns.
