On Feb. 13 Dr. Jill Stein from the Green Party joined America’s Work Force to discuss rank choice voting and why she believes that it should be considered to use for future elections.
Rank choice voting is when the voter will rank as many of the candidates as they would like by order of their own preference. Stein said that with rank choice voting, the voter will not feel like their vote is thrown away if their candidate loses because their vote will then be reassigned to their second choice of candidates, and so on. Stein claims that this is a way to make voting more fair and functional. She also talks about the Green New Deal and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) non-binding resolution that she presented on it.
