Seeing the discussion that's been occurring in The Agora about voting methods, and the support for an Instant Runoff voting method, I'm presenting the following bill: This is the first bill I've presented to the Regional Assembly. All feedback and corrections are welcome. Spoiler: First draft Section 4.5: General Elections 29. The election of the Delegate, the Vice Delegate, the Attorney General, and the Speaker will begin on the first day of the months of January, May, and September. 30. If there are more than two candidates for an election, voters shall rank the candidates in order of preference, with the candidate ranked 1 being the first preference. 31. Voters may rank a minimum of one candidate and a maximum of all candidates in an election. 32. All first preference votes shall be counted first. If no candidate achieves a majority, the candidate with the least votes shall be eliminated, and the next preference of all voters who had voted for that candidate as first preference shall be counted, with the process repeated until one candidate achieves a majority. 33. If a voter's last preference has been eliminated, the voter's ballot shall not be used in further counting. Spoiler: Current law Section 4.5: General Elections 29. The election of the Delegate, the Vice Delegate, the Attorney General, and the Speaker will begin on the first day of the months of January, May, and September. 30. If no candidate for a given office gains a majority, a runoff vote for that office will begin within one day of the first vote ending and it will last for five days. 31. Candidates will be added to the runoff ballot in descending order of how many votes they received. Candidates who received equal numbers of votes will be added the ballot simultaneously. Once the cumulative number of votes received by the candidates on the runoff ballot reaches a majority of votes cast in the previous round of voting, excluding abstentions, no more candidates will be added to the ballot. 32. If no one gains a majority of votes in the runoff vote, the runoff process will be repeated until a candidate receives a majority.
