Summary as introduced:
Instant runoff voting to elect candidates to local governing bodies and school boards. Authorizes the governing body of any county or city to provide by ordinance for the instant runoff voting method of determining winners in elections for the governing body or school board. The method produces a majority winner in a single election by simulating a series of runoff elections. All first choices are counted, and if any candidate receives a majority of first choices, that candidate is elected. If no candidate receives a majority, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated, and all ballots are recounted as one vote for each voter’s highest-ranked candidate who has not been eliminated. The process of eliminating candidates and recounting ballots continues until one candidate receives a majority.
