Ed Helms Joins Fight to Save Instant Runoff Voting

Posted By on Thu, Nov 1, 2018 at 2:40 PM

Actor and comedian Ed Helms jumped into the Memphis election fray with a video criticizing local politicians for trying to eliminate instant runoff voting.  

Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence appeared in a similar video last month.

Here's what the local Save Instant Runoff Voting said about the Helms video:

"Ed Helms, comedian and actor, borrows the voice of Memphians who support voting against all the November (referendums).

"With just five days to go, we’re in a race to stop the city council from tricking voters into undoing the will of the people. We already passed Instant Runoff Voting, and this is our chance to stop politicians from overturning the voters."
