Q&A – Are you in favor of Ranked Choice Voting in Utah?

Yes I’m in favor of ranked choice voting. In the end it allows voters to express their preferences as to who they like. In the case that this splits the vote and no candidate wins a majority the candidate with the least votes gets dropped in each round. This is basically an all in one election and runoff. This is more efficient with our tax dollars by running only one election. Ranked Choice Voting also reduces the length of the election season and allows people to really express their opinion on all candidates, even ones they don’t think can win.

I’m excited to be part of this first Ranked Choice Election in Lehi.
