Welcome back to the CITIZEN newsletter after a brief vacation hiatus. In this edition, we’re focusing on a single big topic: ranked-choice voting.
Some critics of the US election process argue that when most voters head to the polls in November, they don’t really have much of a choice on their ballots.
That’s because legislative and congressional districts have been carved up — largely by politicians themselves — to make the maps so heavily Republican or Democratic that the people who vote in primaries have effectively picked the general election winners. And that means die-hard partisan voters — rather than the broader electorate — exercise enormous sway over who holds elective office in this country.
