New Lawsuit Filed to Get Ranked Choice Voting in Santa Fe

by Richard Winger, published

The voters of Santa Fe, New Mexico, passed a ballot measure in 2008 saying the city should use ranked choice voting in city elections. The city still hasn’t implemented it.

The supporters of ranked choice voting sued the city in the State Supreme Court last month, but that court refused to hear the case.

In response, the supporters of RCV have refiled their case in lower state court. The lower state court must hear the case. See this story. Thanks to Electionline for the link.
