Ranked Choice Voting for Texas Primary Elections
Adopt ranked choice voting to help sort through multiple candidates in primary elections (HB 1112, SB TBD)
This bill eliminates not only the additional time and expense of primary runoff elections, but also the wasted votes of early or mail-in voters that occurs when candidates drop out before election day. Ultimately, the use of ranked choice voting in primary elections will save Texans money and provide voters with increased confidence in selecting their preferred nominees for the general election by ensuring their votes count, even with a large number of similar candidates.
