Maine has been a leader in clean elections since the late 1990s. Now, Mainers are leading again by passing a cutting-edge reform in the voting process itself: Ranked choice voting, also known as instant-runoff voting. Passed by referendum in November, Maine’s ranked choice voting will apply to races for Congress, Governor, and State Legislature but not to municipal offices or president. It is to go into effect in 2018. Kyle Bailey, Campaign Manager for Maine’s Committee for Ranked Choice Voting talks with Brian Standing about the new voting process.
