San Francisco Board of Supervisors Vote on July 10 Whether to Ask Voters to Partially Curtail Ranked Choice Voting

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will vote on Tuesday, July 10, on a measure that would ask the voters in November 2012 if they wish to curtail the use of Ranked Choice Voting in Mayoral elections. Public comment is permitted, and the discussion will start at approximately 2:45 p.m. One measure would eliminate Ranked Choice Voting for Mayoral races and substitute a September election. If no one got 65%, there would be a run-off in November.

Another proposal would make the same change, but for all citywide executive positions, not just Mayor. A third proposal would retain RCV for all office, but for Mayor only, if no one got a majority of First Choice votes in November, there would be a December run-off.

    IRV = THE method to elect Stalin/Hitler clones when the Middle is divided.

    34 S–M–H
    33 H–M–S
    16 M–S–H
    16 M–H–S

    P.R. and nonpartisan Approval Voting — pending Condorcet head to head math

    — regardless of ALL IRV fanatic math MORONS

    — who never heard about the Divided Majority math problem with 3 or more choices.

    How EVIL STUPID are the *leaders* in S.F. ???

    As EVIL STUPID as the Brit/French leaders at Munich in 1938 with Hitler/Mussolini ???

  2. IRV can be corrected if you propose the following fix:

    – No candidate can win if it has the most 1st choices and most last-place choices, even if the candidate did win a majority of the 1st choices
