Don’t Fall For Ranked Choice Voting



Text Size

To the Editor:

As usual Mr Lamont and the Hartford swamp are coming together in the disguise of a “working group” to develop legislation for the state to use ranked choice voting. I encourage everyone to reject any proposals and also for Mr Hwang to expose what rank choice voting is really about and not participate in the Democrat trap to use this form of voting. As quoted by the Heritage Foundation:

“ranked choice voting ... is really a scheme to disconnect elections from issues and allow candidates with marginal support from voters to win elections. In the end, it is about political power, not about what is best for the American people ... So-called reformers want to change process rules so they can manipulate election outcomes to obtain power.”

Don’t fall for it Mr Hwang.

    Not sure where Mr. Vitarbo gets his info, but the below article might help you the reader understand more factually about ranked choice voting. https://www.pbs.org/wnet/preserving-democracy/2023/12/18/ranked-choice-voting-coming-to-more-statewide-ballots-in-2024/
    What is ranked-choice voting? Unlike most elections, in which a candidate can win with a plurality of the vote, RCV requires a majority of the vote to win. In the most common form of RCV voting, candidates for a particular office appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. Voters rank those candidates on their ballot from most to least preferred. If a candidate gets a majority in the first round of voting, that candidate wins and the election is over. But if no candidate gets a majority, the winner is chosen through a series of what are effectively instant runoffs

    You lost whatever semblence of creditbility and respect you may have hoped to earn, the moment you cited the Heritage Foundation….SMH.
