Better Ballot Bulletin: January 15, 2023


Welcome to the Better Ballot Bulletin. Here you will find important updates in the world of instant runoff voting and events to attend that help spread the word of IRV in SC.

There was a time when I had trouble finding three articles in the two weeks between Bulletins. This is no longer the case. Now I pour over dozens to find the ones that I think you will find most pertinent. IRV is the fastest growing reform in the country. Thank you for joining us on this wild ride to better our democracy
