Michelle Spencer has taken the pledge
"Ranked ballots will allow for an election that is fair, one in which the candidate with the majority of votes will be elected, and give voters more options."
Emery Warner has taken the pledge
"Adopting a ranked ballot system seems like a natural evolution of our aging and, sometimes, out of touch electoral system. I support a ranked ballot because it will (i) restore the concept of majority rule, (ii) give the people a louder voice and (iii) provide greater choice for voters come election time. A ranked ballot system will ensure that the candidates with the most votes and broadest support win. It will reduce strategic voting and allow people to vote with there hearts without feeling like their vote was “wasted.” Ranked ballots are a simple and fair way of updating our system."
