St. Paul to Implement Instant Runoff Voting

St. Paul, Minnesota will be implementing an Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) approach that will allow up to 6 candidates to be ranked. This is an important change and by going up to six choices, there is a message of trusting voters to be able to deal with more than one, two or three choices. Often critics say this is too complicated, insulting the ability of voters.
