Talking Points Memo features Fried analysis of Senate race 

Talking Points Memo (TPM) published Amy Fried’s analysis of the impact of ranked-choice voting on the U.S. Senate contest. The professor and chair of the Political Science Department explained how instant runoff voting and a ballot with more than two candidates could impact the outcome of the U.S. Senate race in Maine. If no candidate receives a majority of votes, she indicated that ranked choice vote tabulation could delay announcement of the results increasing anxiety about the outcome.
