"We, the undersigned citizens of South Carolina, are tired of the State of South Carolina wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars every two years on unnecessary runoff elections. I’m fed up with making voters waste their time going to the polls twice to elect someone, when there’s a simple way to vote just once. I’m frustrated with not voting my conscience due to fear of splitting my vote or acting as a 'spoiler'. I’m upset that candidates can be elected without a majority of the votes cast. We are tired of negative and divisive politics. I long for a voting system that promotes respectable candidate debates instead of the current practice of 'mudslinging' and 'flaming.'
We believe South Carolina can be a leader in bringing civility and efficiency back to our government through the use of instant runoff voting.
I appeal to the South Carolina Legislature to pass - and the Governor to sign – legislation that allows instant runoff voting in South Carolina elections."
