Rep. Christopher Rabb, D-Philadelphia, has recently introduced several pieces of election-related legislation – one of which would institute ranked choice voting at the municipal level.
And that’s really good for democracy
The use of RCV, Rabb said, would better gauge how voters feel on issues by comparing their second and third preference candidates’ platforms and “create a standard of accountability that we can directly relate to the demographics of the folks who got them to the finish line.”
“That gives us a lot of data that helps every sector of society in ways that do not exist right now. And that’s really good for democracy, it’s good for campaigning, and it informs good policies,” he added.
