Instant Runoff Voting

Arlington Democratic caucuses have used IRV – Instant Runoff Voting – since 2014 in caucuses with more than two candidates for one slot. Under IRV, you indicate your numeric preference for the candidates – you mark “1” next to the name of your first choice candidate, “2” for your second choice and so on.  If one candidate receives more than 50% of the 1st choice votes, that candidate wins. If not, the candidate with the fewest number of 1st choice votes is eliminated and each of his/her ballots is re-distributed to the candidate listed as the 2nd choice on that ballot. The ballots are counted again and the process continues until one candidate receives more than 50% of the ballots, see www.fairvote.org/rcv#how_rcv_works.
