Senator Steve Kelley Supports Instant Runoff Voting for Municipal Elections

What is your position on instant runoff voting?
“I’m a potential supporter.  I think we ought to try it out on some level.  I support doing it in municipal races to begin with to give people some experience with it and see how it works.  We’ve seen lots of questions about the integrity of voting in the United States in the last couple elections and it’s very important to retain people’s sense of trust in the election system.  Instant runoff voting can be a way to do that as long as we make sure that people understand it so they trust it.”
