No Ranked Choice Voting
Ranked Choice Voting effectively disenfranchises voters by causing confusion when casting ballots, and doesn’t facilitate proper vetting of candidates’ positions. A separate run-off election where the top remaining candidates can be vetted and offer the electorate a chance to cast an informed ballot is the way to ensure authentic self-government.
Ranked-Choice voting may appear on the ballot in Missouri as a proposed constitutional amendment on November 8, 2022.
Yet again, an out-of-state interest group funded by liberal money has come into our state and is using a process that is supposed to be citizen-led — the initiative petition process — to instead try to force Missouri to adopt a law that would hurt our state: ranked choice voting.
Update on Missouri RCV ballot initiative: It appears the proposal to bring ranked-choice voting to Missouri failed to obtain the necessary signatures in every congressional district.
You will not believe what “reformers” have devised to tinker with and manipulate our elections. It is called ranked choice voting (or “instant runoff voting”)—but it is really a scheme to disconnect elections from issues and allow candidates with marginal support from voters to win elections.
