Lawmakers discuss possible change to ‘ranked choice voting’ | Illinois |

Andy Bakker of the Illinois Opportunity Project said the measure has the opposite effect and will limit the opportunity for fair elections.

“At the end of the day, ranked choice voting is a scheme to disconnect elections from issues, and it allows candidates with marginal support to win,” Bakker said. “It obscures true debates and issue-driven dialogues among candidates and eliminates genuine, true, binary choices.”
