DOES RANKED CHOICE VOTING HELP OR HINDER ELECTIONS?
Q&A With Alaska’s Honorable Kevin Meyer
In 2020, Alaskans voted to establish a system of ranked choice voting (RCV) for general elections. Kevin Meyer, Alaska’s lieutenant governor at the time, oversaw the state’s elections when RCV was on the ballot in 2020, approved by voters, and later implemented in the 2022 election.
