Question For St. Paul

September 18, 2009

From our website at

Shouldn’t a vote on whether to implement Instant Runoff Voting be done using an IRV format? 

Example: Should the city of St. Paul implement IRV?

Rank the following choices in order of preference:

___ Yes

___ No

___ Maybe

___ I’d rather have something else

Would the pro-IRV people risk using IRV to decide on it? Or, would they rather stack the deck with choices like ‘strongly yes’, ‘mildly yes’, ‘yes,’ ‘probably,’ – thus guaranteeing the result they want? 

Think about it…
