King County Charter Review Commission to consider IRV

King County will be reviewing its charter this coming year. Already some voters in King County are saying “Why can’t we get rid of the pick-a-party primary like Pierce County did?” Voters in King County will need to get out and testify in favor of replacing the pick-a-party primary with Instant Runoff Voting (IRV).

 The Seattle Weekly writes about the likely impact of Amendment 3 in Pierce County on the King County Charter Review Commission. Some King County officials are not quite certain they like IRV yet, but we all hope that as they study the benefits of IRV for our democracy, they will move towards supporting it.
