Ranked Choice Voting Challenged in Federal Court

According to the San Jose Mercury News, a group of six people, including the person that lost to Ed Jew in 2006, have filed a federal lawsuit alleging "that voters are disenfranchised because they are limited to only three choices."

Ranked choice voting, as implemented in San Francisco and San Leandro, limits voters to three choices, whereas, there are no limits in countries such as Ireland and Australia, that have also implemented RCV.

No word yet on how this might affect San Leandro, which recently voted to implement RCV for November 2010.

This lawsuit doesn't sound very serious.. A grumpy loser with too much money and time on his hands. See:
