Ranked Choice Voting to Strengthen Democracy

To: Dir. Galvin

From: A constituent in Quincy, MA

May 12

Implementing ranked choice voting can protect democracy by promoting majority support, providing more choice, allowing backup rankings, and encouraging positive campaigning focused on issues rather than attacking opponents. Ranked choice voting eliminates the "spoiler" dynamic that can lead to unrepresentative outcomes with plurality voting rules. It upholds majority rule, ensures representation for diverse communities, and reduces incentives for negative campaigning. This reform should be adopted to strengthen democratic institutions and restore faith in the electoral process.
