Discussion will include how the ranked-choice voting process works, how the elections would be conducted, relevant bills in the Legislature’s 2021 General Session and public education efforts. Under ranked choice voting, voters rank the candidates in order of preference. Election equipment tabulates the preference numbers for each ballot. If none of the candidates receive more than 50% of the overall vote after the first round of tabulation, the candidate with the least number of votes is eliminated. The voters who had selected the eliminated candidate as their first choice would then have their votes tabulated for their second-choice candidate. This process of elimination continues until a candidate crosses the 50% threshold and is declared the winner.
