San Francisco used Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) for the first time on Tuesday, Nov 2nd. to elect their Board of Supervisors (their city government). See this article in the San Francisco Chronicle for the whole story. In that article, San Francisco elections chief John Arntz is quoted as saying, "I think ranked-choice voting really went well, everything was pretty smooth.'' This is great news for other municipalities (like Santa Monica) that may consider ranked voting in future elections!
