With more choice, voters have a stronger voice in the outcome of elections and greater confidence their vote will make a difference.
RCV eliminates strategic voting, vote “splintering,” “wasted” votes and the “spoiler” effect.
With more viable candidates on the ballot and greater voter power and voice, voters participate more fully in our electoral process.
Voters who have used RCV prefer it.
Candidates do best when they appeal to a broader range of voters.
Negative attacks may alienate voters and lose crucial 2nd and 3rd choice support the candidate needs to win in an RCV election.
By ensuring that a candidate wins with the support of a majority, RCV eliminates the cost and prevents candidates from winning only by appealing to a narrow base.
