Minneapolis Star Tribune endorses IRV for statewide elections
In Minneapolis this election, the voters endorsed using Instant Runoff Voting for city level elections. During the campaign, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune endorsed the ballot measure.
Now the Star Tribune is advocating using Instant Runoff Voting for statewide elections. The Governor won re-election with a plurality rather than a majority and the Star Tribune sees the problem with such a situation. The state of Washington has similar problems. It is probably just a matter of time before the people of Washington consider a statewide solution to the the pick-a-party problem.
