Consider the confusion of trying to communicate the complicated scenario of ranked choice systems to voters. How many election cycles will it take before all voters understand they have no more chances at the ballot after the first vote is cast, even if no candidate obtains a simple majority? How long will it take for citizens accustomed to a winner only being named after they obtain a majority vote to understand there is no such thing as a runoff election? Will these voters be happy when candidates with less than a majority start winning elections? What will the “mistake” percentage be on ballots?

Consider the impact on our most vulnerable voting populations such as the elderly and assisted living residents.

Bottom line: How many votes will be thrown out due to voting errors caused by a confusing system?
