Ranked Choice Voting allows voters to rank the their choices, which leads to better representation. Places that use ranked choice voting elect more women and minorities to office.
In ranked choice voting, instead of choosing just one candidate, voters can rank their favorites in order of preference. To win, candidates need to win more than 50% of the votes.
