Yay for election reform!

San Francisco is becoming the first location (that I know of at least) to begin using "Ranked-Choice Voting" aka "Instant Runoff". This is mathematically far superior to our normal voting methods and allows you to vote for third parties without "throwing away" your vote.

They have a cool flash demo that will help familiarize you with this kind of voting. Check it out, and lets hope the rest of the nation follows suit someday.

Good ole San Francisco...maybe I should move there.
