There are some really great reasons to adopt ranked ballots: 

  • More people’s voices are truly represented by the candidates who get elected
  • People are elected with true majorities of over 50% of votes, not just the most votes
  • No more strategic voting: people can vote for their real favourite candidate
  • More positive election campaigns as candidates need to court the second and third choices of their opponents’ voters
  • With less negativity, more diverse candidates run for election and more diverse people get elected
