Ranked Choice Voting and Burque

Local Election Act creates options

Under the Local Election Act reforms, city voters no longer have to worry about different dates for nonpartisan municipal elections, November runoffs, school board or water conservation district elections that happen in the middle of February or randomly throughout the year. But perhaps the most important part of this new law involves the implementation of ranked choice voting.
