I commend our Clark County Charter Review Commission Subcommittee on ranked-choice voting for their efforts to make our county elections better, faster and cheaper.
Since this subcommittee was formed earlier this year, they have worked diligently to learn from election advocacy groups, scholars and other municipalities that use ranked choice. In the meetings I’ve attended, they’ve seen evidence this type of voting is election reform that is proven to increase competition, ensure majority winners and save taxpayer dollars — elements that have been missing from our elections for far too long.
As our county charter review subcommittee continues to explore more about how ranked-choice voting can benefit our county, I encourage Clark County voters to support the work our commissioners are doing by educating themselves on ranked-choice voting. You might just be surprised at how easy, secure and fair elections can be.
