Nevada Voters Consider Bringing Ranked Choice Elections to a Swing State

Alaska recently held its first high-profile election using ranked-choice voting, which allows voters to select a second- and third-choice candidate to transfer their vote to if their first-choice candidate doesn't get enough votes to advance. Democrat Mary Peltola was elected in an upset over Republican Sarah Palin after receiving a higher percentage of second-choice votes transferred from the third candidate in the race, and this fall, a number of other states, including Nevada, will consider whether to implement ranked-choice voting.
