Conventional wisdom might suggest that it's mostly progressives that favor ranked choice voting, but in fact support for RCV is growing elsewhere on the political spectrum. The Republican Party used RCV to pick leaders in hotly contested races for Congress in Utah, governor in Virginia, and attorney general in Indiana. Fundamentally, ranked choice voting doesn't preference either party. RCV offers state parties across the country a way to make sure the most electable candidate emerges from primary elections, and a way to legislate more effectively by yielding political institutions better geared to bargaining and accommodation. This is a policy arena worth the serious attention of conservatives.

I avidly support ranked choice voting, and you should feel free to use my name however it might be helpful.
