Re: “Commissioner Mulroy Honored for Reform Efforts

IRV is an important pro-democracy reform. My own city of Burlington, VT started using IRV in our mayoral elections in 2006. We had five candidates with no concerns about "spoilers." Exit polls showed that voters overwhelmingly preferred IRV to the former election method. And voters had no difficulty with the ranked-choice ballot. Fully 99.9% of the votes cast in the mayor's race were valid. The polls closed at 7 pm and by 8:37 pm election night the IRV tally had been completed (since no candidate received a majority of first choices), and the winner was announced. IRV worked great. I hope more jurisdictions adopt it.
