I voted

I cast my first ranked-choice ballot at my St. Paul polling place this morning, and I’m pleased to report that it wasn’t hard. The ballot and the instructions at the polling place make it quite clear that you pick your first choice, second choice, etc. It probably helps that I watched Curtis Gilbert and Molly Bloom’s excellent primer on how instant runoff voting (IRV) works:

Laura Yuen has also reported on St. Paul’s first test of ranked choice voting. She’ll follow up after the election to see if things went smoothly. Any problems at your polling place? Tell us at The Cities.
