Podcast: Democracy reform: Ranked-choice voting
Ranked-choice voting (RCV) is a promising way to boost electoral turnout, reduce polarization, and cut the public cost of running elections. This relatively new reform is now being used in 55 states, cities and counties.
In August, Alaska implemented ranked-choice voting for the first time since a 2020 referendum revamped its elections. This episode's guest, Rob Richie, President and CEO of FairVote, makes the case for how it works and why RCV is a viable way to improve electoral politics. Right now, he says, we are in this "incredibly intense winner-take-all environment" in most states.
