Instant run-off voting in Georgia Senate race

Recent pieces by John Tures at The Conversation and Kerwin Swint at RealClearPolitics each point out that Georgia’s expensive run-off election could be avoided if the state adopted ranked choice voting (or, maybe more appropriately for a run-off election, instant run-off voting).

It’s worth noting that military and overseas voters have the option to use IRV in this year’s election, as a result of the Georgia legislature moving up the timeline for a run-off and recognizing the challenge of enfranchising UOCAVA voters in such a short turnaround.
