Re: “Democracy N.C.'s Bob Hall ...

An acquaintance of mine near Cary told me about this IRV article because she knew my city also uses instant runoff voting (IRV). IRV works very well, and avoided the cost and lower voter turnout of a separate runoff election in our last mayoral election. Some people worried voters couldn't handle the ranked-choice ballot, but, in fact, 99.9% of ballots were valid, and exit polls showed voters much prefer IRV to the old system. I think more cities and states should adopt it, since it helps avoid the "spooiler" problem and is simpler and cheaper than separate runoff elections to find a majority winner.
