In favor of Ranked Choice Voting

To the editor:

I’m in favor of a yes vote for Question 5, Ranked Choice Voting – a simple way to restore majority rule in Maine elections. If my favorite candidate can’t win, my vote would be instantly counted by my second choice.

In five of the last 11 races for governor, candidates were elected by less than 40 percent of voters.

Ranked Choice Voting would put an end to this, as successful candidates would have more than 50 percent of votes cast.
