Independent Voter News Carries Mike Feinstein’s Praise for Ranked Choice Voting Combined with Praise for Political Party Rights to Nominate

Ballot Access News

The Independent Voters News has this opinion piece by Green Party activist Mike Feinstein of California. It praises Maine’s use of ranked choice voting, and criticizes Alaska’s new ranked choice voting. The difference is that in Maine, parties continue to have their own nominees, whereas in Alaska, parties have lost the ability to have nominees. It is good that IVN carried this piece, because in the past IVN has been supportive of eliminating party nominees.
