News in Instant Runoff Voting

Virginia and IRV

In 2021, the Virginia GOP used instant runoff voting to select their candidates. With these IRV selected candidates, the VA GOP swept the state's top positions: governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general.

Looks like they've discovered how great IRV is at picking strong candidates.
