“Voters in New York City passed a measure to adopt a ranked-choice voting system in some future elections.” -— Wonder what the real-world effects will be on this.
Voters in New York City passed a measure to adopt a ranked-choice voting system in some future elections. The new system, which passed with overwhelming support, will let people rank up to five candidates in order of preference, rather than picking just one to support.

The system will be used in primaries and special elections starting in 2021.

Sanctuary city status was on the ballot in Tucson.....lost. Against-79 percent, for-21 percent.
Surprised they were beaten that badly, given the academic environment there.
