more RCV study
Bits & Pieces
FairVote AZ advocating for Ranked Choice Voting
April 1, 2009
It is tempting to send a message today saying how some place in Maricopa County RCV has gotten a foot hold
– but you would recognize it as an April Fool’s Day joke – for now.
However, some places move forward.
Yesterday, LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas proposed that the County study the potential benefits of Instant Runoff Voting – and the LA County Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed. Here’s a link to a piece from yesterday’s LA Times: http://www.irvinla.org/latest_news/l-county-study-using-instant-runoff-elections.
Supervisor Ridley-Thomas’ motion is available here: http://file.lacounty.gov/bos/supdocs/48393.pdf.
Hope they do a good job and produce a product that we can take advantage of for educational or advocacy purposes here in Arizona .
