Is Ranked-Choice A Better Way To Vote?

Listen here

Maine recently became the first state in the country to adopt a voting tabulation system known as ranked-choice voting. The goal is to ensure the winning candidate always receives at least 50% of the vote. We’re having a discussion about the pros and cons of the system and whether it could work in Vermont

We’re joined by Independent Rep. Laura Sibilia of West Dover, the lead sponsor of H.444, a bill that would implement ranked-choice voting in some Vermont elections.

And by Republican Rep. Robert LaClair of Barre Town, who has concerns about the bill.

Plus we’ll hear from Kyle Bailey of The Committee for Ranked Voting in Maine.

Broadcast live on Friday, April 12, 2019 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
