We're back at you with a whole new podcast episode and it's only been … five months? We're still figuring out how to carve a sustainable podcast with all of our reporting work and limited staff, but we've missed you — and we know you missed Luke's buttery podcast voice — so we have a special episode!In November, we hosted our first-ever live podcast recording at the Central Library, where we got a panel together to talk about Ranked Choice Voting, and the attendees got to ask questions. Marilyn Darilek from League of Women Voters Spokane and Trenton Miller from FairVote WA joined Luke on stage to explain the ins and outs of Ranked Choice Voting and share about the process to get it adopted in municipalities all over the state. We even held a mock Ranked Choice Vote election on quality seasonal pies. Given how strongly people feel about pumpkin, apple and pecan, it was remarkably civil!Real quick: what is Ranked Choice Voting?In our current voting system, you get to place one vote for one person in any given election. Your only alternative to voting for one person is to vote for no one. Plenty of political scientists believe this system all but guarantees a two-party dominant system — and that is certainly how it has played out in America. In ranked choice voting, though, as we'll hear explained in detail, you get to pick several candidates in order from the person you like the most to the person you like the least. And if you loathe someone so much, you can just not rank them at all.If your top choice has a chance of winning, that vote stays. If your top choice gets eliminated, your second choice gets your vote and so on, until one candidate has 50% plus 1 vote. It's up to each of us to decide if RCV is something we want to fight for, but at the very least we should recognize the shortcomings of our current system. If you hear yourself saying “I like this person, but they can't win, so I won't vote for them” — then our system of voting is not working for you. Of course that doesn't mean your candidate will always win. But shouldn't we have a system where the best thing you can possibly do as a citizen is say, “I believe this is the best person to lead us, and that's who I'm going to vote for?”People who study ranked choice voting elsewhere believe that it leads to more pluralistic elections: there's room for more parties and more political viewpoints when you can rank your favorites rather than voting for just one.And even if the two parties stick around for a while, the immediate benefit of ranked choice voting is that you still get to have a vote be a truer and more nuanced representation of your opinion about a race — and therefore a more nuanced representation of how you think this city, this county, this state, this nation, ought to be run — without feeling like you're throwing away your vote on a candidate who is too good to be elected. The event went off without a hitch, and we look forward to doing many more.MASSIVE THANKS to our guests Marilyn Darilek from League of Women Voters and Trenton Miller from FairVote WA, and our friends at the Spokane Public Library who made this...

We have a 2022 post-election show with a twist. Instead of focusing on which party is up or down, we open the hood and examine the engine of our democracy. Voters delivered a clear verdict: Most election deniers were defeated as many voters, especially independents, split their ballots, and shunned the extremes.Our guests are Layla Zaidane, President and CEO of Millennial Action Project— the nation's largest nonpartisan organization of young lawmakers— and David Meyers, founding Executive Editor of the democracy newsletter, The Fulcrum.In the days before the election, the media was full of warnings, and perhaps some hyperbole, about the perilous state of American democracy. Both of our guests and podcast co-hosts agree that many of the results were reassuring for the guardrails of the electoral system."I think when the dust settles we're going to feel pretty good about this election," Layla told us. "Things went really well," said David. "The continued use of voting-by-mail and early voting has gone a long way towards making sure more people had the opportunity to vote and not wait in very long lines."We also examine the arguments over Ranked-Choice Voting, open primaries, and the need for a quicker vote account in some states where results took well over a week to come through.In their conversation after the interview, Jim and Richard debate voting-my-mail, early voting, reforming the primaries, and how to encourage states to make improvements in vote tabulation. Richard favors limited action by Congress, but Jim is vigorously opposed to any federal reforms or interference in how states conduct their elections.Recommendation: Richard is reading "Broken News.

*Featuring Tom Charron from CalRCVGO VOTE.Politics in the US has gotten more and more extreme over the past few years. A complex mix of changes in class, laws, technology, and the media have created a witches' brew for political extremism. The January 6th insurrection and the recent assassination attempt on Nancy Pelosi underscore this new brand of violent political extremism. Rank Choice Voting (RCV) is one way many experts suggest we can slow down, stop, and even reverse this trend in extremism. RCV supporters also claim the voting rule change would eliminate "spoiler votes" and open up all elections to third-party candidates. To understand RCV more, in this episode of SFM, Scot and Braus interviewed Tom Charron the cofounder of CalRCV, the organization fighting for Rank Choice Voting in California. The solution this week is not RCV itself; instead, the gang explores some potential out-of-the-box ways to spread RCV across the state and the country.

This election, Multnomah County voters will decide whether to join the 50 or so other municipalities around the country that have adopted a system of ranked choice voting.Multnomah County's Measure 26-232 is different from the one on the Portland ballot that would change the city's form of government, including a form of ranked choice voting.The county measure would use a basic method of instant runoff ranked choice voting to decide contests for sheriff, auditor, and all the members of the Multnomah County Commission.As a hypothetical example, 100 voters are choosing among Apple, Banana and Cherry. Banana gets 45 first choice votes, more than Apple or Cherry, but not the 51 needed to win. Another round of counting is done: Cherry had 41, and Apple had 14, so Apple is eliminated. All of Apple's second choice votes are then counted, which in this theoretical election are evenly split -- with seven votes going to each remaining fruit -- leaving a final tally of Banana: 52 and Cherry: 48. However, if Cherry had gotten 10 of those Apple votes instead of seven, the outcome would have put Cherry … on top.Minneapolis, Minnesota has been using this kind of instant runoff ranked choice voting since 2009. We talk with Aaron Grossman, one of the city's election supervisors, about how it's been working there and what he's heard from voters over the years.

After the frustrating loss for Conservatives in Alaska last night, Charlie spends the full show diving into the idiotic system that is Ranked Choice Voting, and how it might be disastrous for The Red Wave if we don't put a stop to it. One of the most confusing parts of our voting system, Ranked Choice Voting is picking up steam as the Left realizes that in this case, ignorance is power. Most Americans don't understand the significance or process behind it, so Charlie explains it in full detail to listeners so that they can recognize it creeping into their states before it's too late. He gives a huge warning to the audience so that it can be stopped before midterms.Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/supportSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
