The D.C. Council will consider changing the way the District of Columbia conducts its elections. Independent Councilmember David Grosso introduced a bill on Tuesday calling for instant-runoff voting in elections for mayor, the council and attorney general.
Voters in instant-runoff elections rank candidates in order of preference. Candidates with the fewest votes are eliminated in rounds. That means if a voter’s first choice has been eliminated, that voter’s second choice gets a vote.
