Ranked Choice Voting approved for Maine primaries

by  Lura Jackson

Following a series of challenges to a 2016 people’s referendum in which 52 percent of voters statewide chose to approve Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), the Maine Supreme Court has ruled that the June 12 primaries will go forward with the new method of voting. Whether or not the November elections will follow suit will be determined by a new referendum with which voters can express their wishes in June.
