Los Angeles considering Ranked Choice Voting

In California in general and Los Angeles in particular, city council elects often require runoff elections.

Since runoff elections can be very expensive, saving the cost of just one election can make IRV a cost saver in Los Angeles.

The economics in Los Angeles are quite compelling and we may well see IRV there soon.
