Could Massachusetts follow in Maine’s footsteps next year?

Supporters of ranked choice voting are beginning the push for a 2020 ballot question proposing the unconventional election system for the Bay State.

“While we will continue advocating for the successful passage of two ranked choice voting bills before the Legislature this session, we are finalizing language to submit to the Attorney General as the first step toward getting RCV before the voters on the 2020 ballot,” Emily Fitzmaurice, the communications director for Voter Choice Massachusetts, said in a statement, which was first reported Wednesday evening by the State House News Service.
