State lawmakers are proposing a new bill that would dramatically change how Wisconsin conducts some elections.
The proposed legislation would implement ranked choice voting for Wisconsin’s eight U.S. congress and two senate seats. Dozens of towns and cities across the country use ranked choice voting in local elections — but the process has seen substantially less use in statewide races.
For more, WORT Producer Jonah Chester spoke with state Senator Jeff Smith — a Democrat from Brunswick. Smith is a lead author on the proposed legislation.
