Instant Runoff Voting to Get a Test in Pierce County

KING 5 reports on the passage of Amendment 3 in Pierce County. Amendment 3 will replace the pick-a-party primary with Instant Runoff Voting for county level officials starting in 2008.

Amendment 3 will eliminate the primary and put all candidates on the general election ballot. Voters will then be able to cast their vote for any candidate, any party. A definite upgrade for voters who pine for the old blanket primary.
