Two Elections Aren't Better Than One
Then came the results from Burlington's mayoral election last week, where they voted with instant runoff voting for the second time. 94% of voters participated in the final round of counting! Because voters were able to rank the candidates, they were able to simply vote in one election without having to worry about coming back in a few months. I'm sure they were also glad the city didn't spend their tax money on a second election for the exact same race.
I don't know about you, but I would much rather have an election where 94% of voters ARE participating in an election as opposed to 94% sitting it out.
