  1. I’m a proud Coloradoan and loving our new Governor Polis and the initiatives that matter most to our state. Would love to know others’ thoughts on moving towards a more fair election process like rank choice voting, as currently used in Ireland. What do you all think? I think we could have a system where all our votes actually count, and not just focus on the popular vote versus Electoral College. Here’s a quick look at Ireland’s voting process: https://www.thejournal.ie/how-does-prstv-work-2619448-Feb2016/

  2. I think national rank choice voting is more important than the elimination of the electoral college. Rank choice voting would enable the possibility of a third party because the two current parties are so polar of one another. The process would also be more cohesive during the primaries, instead of everyone clinging to who is number one in the poles, the candidates further down the ling would get more attention. Every state should put rank choice on the ballot.
