PI prints guest editorial in favor of Amendment 3
Tacoma's own Richard Anderson-Connolly, professor at UPS and instant-runoff voting advocate, wrote an excellent opinion piece on what Amendment 3 is and what a similar initiative could do for Seattle and King County.
Read the full piece here, then leave a message here for the good professor.
Here's my favorite quote from the piece:
Because instant-runoff voting eliminates the lesser-of-two-evils approach to voting, independent and third-party candidates will receive many first-choice votes from those who are only weakly attached to the two major parties, a growing number almost every year. The parties may have a bit more control internally but they will face more serious competition externally -- more candidates and thus more voices will participate in the instant-runoff voting election.
