PROVO, Utah (AP) — Seven cities in Utah County have so far said they plan on using ranked-choice voting for this year’s municipal elections.
The Daily Herald reported Wednesday ranked-choice voting allows voters to rank candidates they prefer from first to last.
If no candidate gets more than half of the first place votes, the candidate with the least votes is eliminated and their votes go to the voter’s second choice.
The process recycles until a candidate has the majority of votes.
The cities and towns that have opted in include Lehi, Springville, Woodland Hills, Goshen, Genola, Payson and Vineyard.
