Alaska runs a mock election to demonstrate the new ranked-choice voting system:

"Last we checked, king crab was narrowly ahead of three other Alaska seafoods in the Division of Elections’ mock primary.

King crab, of course, will never hold elected office. But, for now at least, it’s got a lead for the title of “Best Seafood in Alaska” in an online election simulation app. The division is using it as a chance to begin educating Alaskans about how they’ll vote in 2022.

That statewide election will be the first shaped by Ballot Measure 2, which voters approved last year." Read more.
