Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Ranked-Choice Voting: It Could Take Weeks to Determine NYC Mayor Race Winner” – below is their description.
The vast majority of federal and state elections in the U.S. are guided by plurality rule: Each voter selects one candidate, and the person with the most votes wins.
Critics say this system, while simple to grasp, means voters can’t fully express their views on a multicandidate field.
An alternative way to vote has drawn interest in U.S. municipalities, and Maine last year became the first U.S. state to use it in a presidential general election. This year, for its mayoral election, New York City gives ranked-choice voting a try.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
