The word democracy implies fairness. When we examine current practices around voting in our country, fairness is not apparent in all cases. I am going to leave the “how” it works to a video: Ranked-choice voting in Minneapolis. The “Why” it works is that it adds fairness to the process.
One way to promote RCV would be to implement it in our internal Olympia Indivisible voting for candidates to endorse. To this end the Endorsement team will become knowledgeable in the “how” and make recommendations to the Steering Committee regarding implementation.
