Seattle Times advocates IRV

The Seattle Times has congratulated the voters of Pierce County for passing Charter Amendment 3 and voting to implement Instant Runoff Voting in place of the despised pick-a-party primary for county level officials. The editorial goes on to suggest the King County Charter Review Commission should put a similar measure on the ballot for consideration by King County voters.

The Times notes that Instant Runoff Voting would be a big improvement in how we elect our statewide officials as well as our state legislators. The state legislature should look for ways to help this reform come to full flower.
