Grassroots push to change voting system in Arizona

How ranked choice voting works.

Come Election Day voters will have a single choice to make for president. But a grassroots movement in Southern Arizona aims to eventually give them the option to select more than one candidate and rank their favorites. Christopher Conover learned more about rank choice voting from Adam Friedman, who helped spearhead a ballot initiative in Massachusetts that calls for the state to adopt ranked choice voting in 2022. The League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson invited Friedman to speak about how to build support at the grassroots level. Frances Epsen also spoke to Conover about why the league is interested in bringing the voting system to Arizona.
