Ranked Choice Voting Explained

We NEED Ranked Choice Voting (aka Instant Runoff Voting, or IRV). The following video explains it simply and well. IRV eliminates lesser-of-two-evils voting, eliminates the “spoiler effect”, reduces political hostility (because candidates need the favor of their opponents’ supporters as well as their own), allows greater third-party involvement and increases democratic choice. BTW, it has bi-partisan support! It CAN be done. FairVote is a good source of info on IRV.
