Ballot Question 2: Ranked Choice Voting

The LWV of Massachusetts has supported ranked choice voting since 2005 when it was termed Instant Run-Off Voting. On October 5, 2020, the LWV Hingham hosted a Ranked Choice Voting Webinar for its members and the public to explain the topic. We are pleased to share this recording in our efforts to create more informed voters.
