Implementation of Ranked Choice Voting in Pierce County
The Pierce County Elections Department has been working hard for the first six months of this year to put together an implementation plan for ranked choice voting and to educate community groups on how it is going to work. Pierce County Auditor Pat McCarthy has gone on record that her organization will be ready for the 2008 elections. Her staff is on schedule for successful implementation in 2008. There is still much work to be done, but progress is on track.
John Ladenburg and others are trying to derail the will of the voters and efforts of the Elections Department staff. Ladenburg likes the pick-a-party primary so much that he wants to keep it instead of moving to the superior ranked choice voting method. The County Council should reject Ladenburg and his ilk in their efforts to subvert the will of the people.
