ELECTION SYSTEMS RESEARCH GROUP
CALLS COLORADO INITIATIVE ‘GROUNDBREAKING’


  DENVER, Colorado – The Initiative for a new election system approved by ballot-access regulators in Colorado is “groundbreaking” and does more than any other state election system  to promote contested elections, a nationally-recognized voting systems research organization has concluded in a new report.

The Center for Voting and Democracy (www.fairvote.org) compared the Colorado proposal with those already implemented or being considered in other states, and judged the Colorado plan the best.

“Real diversity of opinion in the general election combined with ranked choice voting should create meaningfully contested general elections,” the report’s authors concluded.

The Coalition’s proposal  would result in the election of far more problem-solving candidates by abolishing taxpayer funded primary elections and replacing them with a two-stage election system in which every voter could vote for any  candidate on the ballot in their district, regardless of their or the candidate’s party affiliation.
