FairVote and Civinomics Release RCV App
FairVote is pleased to partner with Civinomics to launch a new tool for understanding electoral politics and voter inclinations in multi-candidate contexts across the United States. Our ranked choice voting (RCV) application allows users to rank candidates in order of choice. With the large Republican presidential field dominating attention around which of the 17 candidates will be included in the first presidential debate, the need for comprehensive polling tools to understand voter preferences is essential.
The app allows users to rank candidates and cast a ballot for the particular contest. Once the ballot is submitted, users can view the results of a contest. The tool indicates the winner in an RCV contest and allows users to view details of the counting process round-by-round. In addition, users can eliminate a candidate to see how the departure of that candidate impacts others still in the contest.
