Colorado Progress for IRV

On September 4th the city council of Aspen, Colorado, voted 5-0 to place a measure on the November 6th ballot to adopt IRV for mayoral and city council elections. Backers include the Aspen Times and Colorado Common Cause.

FairVote's Rob Richie testified about IRV to the Aspen city council on August 20th. That same week, he presented on IRV and proportional voting for two hours to the statewide Voter Choice Task Force. Chaired by state representative John Kefalas and including leading state and local election administrators and civic leaders, the task force's final report is due later this year.
