TBAF President Pens Op-Ed Detailing Why Wyoming Needs Instant Runoffs
Updated: Jan 18
Over the weekend TBAF President John Pudner wrote an op-ed for the Wyoming Tribune Eagle outlining how the state would benefit from Instant Runoff elections. This op-ed followed John's testimony to state legislators at the capitol earlier in the week where afterward the Joint Corporations Interim Committee voted 9-5 to advance the Instant Runoff efforts.
"On Monday, I testified at the Wyoming Legislature’s Joint Corporations Interim Committee meeting, and after great questions, the Committee advanced the effort by a 9-5 vote."
"An initial draft would enact a Ranked Choice Voting process similar to that enacted in Utah and the one at the 2021 Virginia GOP Convention. This proposed bill language would also set up the same process used in Maine in 2020, which resulted in the upset re-election of Republican US Senator Susan Collins and President Trump’s much larger than expected 7-point win in Maine-2 during the Presidential election that same year." Quoted from John's op-ed. You can read John's op-ed in it's entirety here.
