The latest election reform at the Wisconsin Capitol could mean more choices on Election Day.
A small group of lawmakers yesterday introduced a ranked voting proposal. The idea is that voters rank candidates for Congress and the U.S. Senate from their first choice on down. If one candidate doesn’t get a majority on the first vote, second choices are then counted until there is a winner. Supporters say ranked voting could help get different people elected from Wisconsin. Ranked voting would not be used to elect state lawmakers or statewide office holders.
