Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
As a SF voter I have been very happy with IRV, which was approved by voters in the 2002 primary election and first implemented in the fall of 2004. We have had several election cycles since then, and it has worked well: ballots have not been any more confusing than they already are, the city has saved a fair bit of money by holding fewer elections, and the number of voters who have participated in elections has increased over the previous "delayed run-off" system that required voters to go back to the polls in mid-December.
It's nice to see voters in the East Bay get a chance to try it out.
