Terrance Carroll: How ranked-choice voting could have kept Colorado voters from wasting their ballots
March 16, 2020
Unite Colorado Executive Director Terrance Carroll wrote for the Denver Post about how ranked choice voting could have saved thousands of votes in the Democratic primary on Tuesday.
"In Colorado, voters are familiar with the caucus system — something we’ve historically used to demonstrate presidential preference. Transferring to a primary system means our election results are more representative because more voters are enfranchised, but in moving away from the caucus system, we’ve limited the ability to express nuance in voters’ opinions. Ranked-choice voting puts voters first by restoring their ability to say exactly who they want to be president."
