Ranked Choice Voting

Ranked choice voting is an election method in which voters rank candidates for an office in order of their preference (first choice, second choice, third choice, and so on). If a candidate receives more than half of the first choices, that candidate wins. If there is no majority winner after counting the first choices, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated, and voters who ranked that candidate as their first choice will have their votes count for their next choice. This process continues until a candidate with more than half of the vote wins.
