From Granite Geek‘s by David Brooks:
Harvard law professor Larry Lessig has been in New Hampshire often enough for political advocacy that he knows what will get lawmakers’ attention here, and he got right to the point Tuesday: He thinks our presidential primary is in danger.
Lessig was testifying in favor of a bill to change the 2020 primary to ranked-choice voting, which would allow people to vote not just for a single candidate for each office, but mark the ballot to rank all the hopefuls from their top choice to their bottom choice.
Lessig said Iowa was likely to change its presidential caucuses to ranked-choice voting, which would give a much more detailed picture of voter preferences, particularly among what looks to be a large field in the Democratic Party. If New Hampshire sticks with the traditional system, he argued, our primary results will be muddy and of much less value, diluting the stature of the First in the Nation Primary.
