Can this really happen for 2020?

Can this really happen for 2020?

Yes! As more and more candidates enter the race, legislators, reformers and party leaders are considering how to accommodate the growing field while producing the best possible nominee. In New Hampshire, our allies at Equal Citizens in collaboration with local legislators introduced a bill that calls for ranked ballots in the 2020 primary, which was tabled but with plans to revisit next year. Meanwhile, the Iowa Democratic Party has unveiled plans that call for ‘virtual caucuses’ letting participants phone-in their votes using ranked choices in the hopes of increasing turnout without requiring participants to attend their live, precinct caucuses. Maine could also consider ranked choice voting if it decides moves to a primary for its 2020 nomination, while a recent column in the Minneapolis Star Tribune made a compelling case for the Minnesota state primary based on the successful use for local elections in the Twin Cities.
