Below you can see how South Carolinians voted in the August 2023 Poll. Use the interactive bargraph to see how instant runoff voting redistributes votes according to the original ranked ballot after a first choice has been eliminated.
As you can see, even when a candidate commands a majority in the first round, we can still eliminate low vote getters to see how much support the winner truly has. This gives them a clearer mandate to govern. To learn more about how instant runoff voting works and its many benefits, please visit our Why IRV page.
