Learn About Final Five Voting with League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters of Door County will host a virtual program on Feb. 24, 7 pm, to discuss ranked voting.

Legislation has been introduced in both the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate to create a new way of electing our representatives at all levels of government using a “ranked voting” method. Sara Eskrich of Democracy Found calls it “Final Five Voting: Top Five Primary And Instant Runoff General Elections.” But how, exactly, does Final Five Voting work, and would it really help to fix at least some of the divisive politics of elections?

“Democracy Found is a Wisconsin-based initiative committed to revitalizing democracy,” Eskrich said. “By implementing a system wherein the top five candidates are selected from the primary ballot and instant runoff voting is used in the general election, we will ensure politicians are held accountable for delivering results. This, in turn, will renew each other’s belief that every vote counts and every voice is heard.”

Join the virtual program to learn more about the initiative and ask questions. Registration is required by Feb. 23 by emailing [email protected]
