Besides plurality voting as commonly used in the U.S., other ways to count votes include ranked choice voting, approval voting and proportional representation. Several state Leagues have formed positions in favor of ranked-choice voting (RCV), which is also known as instant-runoff voting (IRV). Should Delaware join their ranks?

Maine used ranked-choice voting for state-wide elections in 2018, and it changed the outcome of the election. Ranked-Choice Voting (RCV), also called Instant-Runoff Voting (IRV) allows the voter to select their first, second and third choices, rather than making a single selection. Come learn more about it! $18 buffet lunch at 11:30, or come at noon for the program only.
