Ranked choice voting (RCV) is possibly my favorite policy position. The concept is simple: A voter is allowed to pick their first choice, second choice, third choice, etc. Out of the list of candidates in an election, if no candidate has a majority of first choice votes, the candidate with the fewest first place votes is eliminated and their votes are transferred to each of their voters second choice. This process is repeated until one candidate has a majority.
