Fried speaks to Mother Jones about ranked choice voting

In an article about Sarah Palin’s attacks on ranked choice voting, Amy Fried, professor of political science at the University of Maine, spoke to Mother Jones about the use of the system in Maine. Maine has been doing ranked-choice voting since 2016 and several cities and municipalities around the country have also adopted the system. “There isn’t a higher rate of incomplete or spoiled ballots in ranked choice races compared to ballots in elections using plurality voting, nor is turnout lower,” Fried said.
