Early voting starts today in Vermont, 45 days ahead of Primary Day. I can’t believe the Demorats refuse to institute Instant Runoff Voting for their primary elections. Demorats have five candidates vying for governor and IRV is the only way to determine the real will of the people.
Hell, why don’t they just draw straws?
Chris.tine thinks it’s because we confuse “instant runoff” with “trickle-down” theory.
I figure it’s better than straw gathering because the top two vote getters (one a Repuglican) lost the Burlington, VT, mayoral race in favor of Bob Kiss who came in third with 7 votes overall.
