the research project's budget to the Center for Voting and Democracy
(www.fairvote.org). You have to do it by Wednesday, though, so click on it

let's take full advantage of the opportunity to spread the word on instant
runoff voting to the people who have the ability to implement it.
Again, www.mostcredible.org is the Stanford University research project
website to click on before Wednesday to give the Center for Voting and
Democracy five dollars.
