State of Maine to Adopt Ranked Ballots

During last week’s US general election, voters in Maine passed a ballot intuitive that will make Maine the first state in the United States to adopt ranked ballot voting in future elections. Ranked ballots will now be used for electing the state assembly, governor, and members of congress. In 2010 and 2014 Maine’s governor was elected with less than 50 percent of the popular vote.
