Don't legitimize neopronouns. A person is either a man or a woman.

There are 0 trans people. Trans does not exist.

I never said there was. I was talking about a hypothetical if the ballot measure in 2020 failed.

But apparently you lack reading comprehension.

No, ranked choice/instant runoff voting is not illegal. I have no idea why you'd think something like that. The amount of misinformation surrounding IRV on this site is astounding sometimes.

Voters are not required to rank more than one candidate. If you vote for only one candidate, it will count.

It's a top-4 primary, she only needs 20%ish first place votes to advance. She will almost inevitably be one of two R candidates listed in November.

You realize that IRV actually helps us here? Murkowski would probably win a first-past-the-post Republican primary right now, but once it's narrowed down to 2 R candidates we have a better shot of beating her (especially considering most third-party voters won't be going to Murkowski as their #2.)

Nope, the instructions specifically say that a single vote is legal.

It's disturbingly common for people here to not realize that IRV actually benefits us in most elections, as it diminishes the effect of the split conservative vote.

In a "normal" primary + first-past-the-post system, Murkowski would probably win the R nom today with under 50%, leaving us no MAGA options in the general. In the new Alaska system, she has to beat another Republican in November.

She had 44% of the vote in 2016 with full Republican support. The only way she beats Tshibaka is if she gets a decent portion of the R vote and most of the Dem/third-party voters pick her over Tshibaka. That's not likely to happen.

Ranking her last is equivalent to ranking everyone else and not ranking her. Instant runoff can never have a person's vote count for their last-choice candidate.

Because anyone can register a domain name and redirect it anywhere.

Because they're too old and crusty to be put to any use.

Because anyone who still thinks it came from a bat is a faggot.

They weren't rioters. Stop using their language.
