Good-bye, IRV

Dear Editor:

“It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting.” -Tom Stoppard

How can one put in sequence eight candidates for election when it’s hard to understand the platform of just one or two. With the current IRV your votes will be ranked but which ones will be included in the election or tossed as your candidate lost? Too confusing!

While the latest IRV experiment was noble it turns out to be impractical and a failure. Thanks for trying, but no thanks in the future.

Vote “yes” on Referendum 2B to terminate the current IRV voting method for mayor and council and reinstate the previous method of voting.

Make sure to vote even if neither candidate is worth the effort.
