Ranked-choice voting is right for Maryland

March 27, 2023

I concur with the March 21 editorial “A better way to vote” that some of the Republican opposition to ranked-choice voting is an admission that they believe GOP candidates “are less broadly acceptable to voters.” When prominent Republicans, such as Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.), claim that Alaska’s new ranked-choice voting system is “a scam to rig elections” against GOP candidates, they are alleging, incorrectly, that these candidates can’t compete in a wide-open contest in which centrist, independent-minded voters can participate.
