Tim Ryan…? In My Opinion, Ohio Needs Rank Choice Voting like Alaska

By wooing and chasing Republicans, #TimRyan seems like he wants to support #Corporate/#Business America rather than the actual people. 😒 [side eye] Why Tim? You’re looking like a wannabe Republican.  Once you head down that road, it’s hard for some of us to take you seriously.

You do know that the people are the ones who will keep you in office right?  If I were an Independent or Progressive I would not be rushing to the polls to support you.

That is why I think Rank Choice Voting would benefit Ohio greatly.  Not only Ohio though, I think the nation would benefit greatly from a voting system like that.  In essence, you would write down your first, second, and third candidates in the order of your preference.  And, as the votes are tallied, depending on the percentage of votes received someone will eventually emerge that should be a consensus candidate amongst voters.  It might be decided in the 1st round; but most assuredly by the 3rd round.

Alaska recently used rank choice voting to elect Peltola over Palin in their runoff election.  After the election was done, most people seemed to agree that the process was simple and the outcome, fair.  And, Palin walked off into the sunset for the time being.

Let’s consider this type of voting for the entire nation.  Imagine we could technically even the playing field for independent candidates who are not backed by a major political party like the Republicans or Democrats.  People could here their message and decide if they should be given a chance to represent their community or state.  It’s time for change.  Let’s make it happen.
