Where in the U.S. ranked-choice voting is used

Data: FairVote; Map: Axios Visuals

Some voting experts are concerned the disastrous mayoral election in New York City will cause Americans to blame ranked-choice voting — rather than problems with the city's election board.

Between the lines: There's slowly growing support for ranked-choice voting, which allows voters to choose not only their top candidate but their second choice and third choices, and so on. Localities across the U.S. have had successful ranked-choice elections, and others are eyeing it for upcoming races.

  • 22 jurisdictions used ranked-choice voting in their most recent elections, as of June, according to the advocacy group Fair Vote.
  • 53 plan to use it in at least one of their next two elections.

What they're saying: When it comes to the mistakes made in New York, which caused officials to mistakenly count 135,000 test ballots, "I am worried that it will hurt ranked-choice voting nationwide — although I hope it doesn't and it shouldn't," Edward Foley, an election expert at Ohio State University, told Axios.

  • "Already the beef against ranked-choice voting is that it's too complicated ... but this will just add to the concerns," said Rick Hasen, a recognized election expert at the University of California, Irvine.
  • "I think it reflects the general incompetence of New York City's board of elections, rather than having anything to do with ranked-choice voting."

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
