Op-Ed: Georgia joins other states in shooting down ranked-choice voting
By Jason Thompson
Ranked-choice voting proponents have employed deceptive messaging, framing it as based on "the idea of fairness," to sway public opinion. A polling memo revealed that such misleading arguments resonate with the electorate. This deceptive approach was evident ahead of a Wisconsin Senate hearing on a bill seeking to force the state to adopt ranked-choice voting.
Considering the threats to election integrity and the disproportionate impact on minority voters ranked-choice voting represents, Georgia's Senate Bill 355 represents a crucial step toward protecting our democracy. As the nation grapples with the integrity of our electoral system, we must prioritize the inclusivity and fairness necessary to uphold the democratic values that define our nation.
