What is Instant Runoff Voting?
It's a simple upgrade to how we already vote in Georgia. Instead of having a second runoff election, we let voters rank their choices and conduct an instant runoff. No need to come back to the ballot box. If your first choice doesn't get enough votes, your vote automatically transfers to your next ranked choice.
- IRV simplifies our voting system — saving voters time and taxpayers money.
- IRV amplifies voters voices — reducing runoff vote drop off and giving voters more choice on the ballot.
- IRV reduces negative campaigning — if a candidate can't be your first choice, they want to be your second.
