Michael,

   I'm working with the Chief of Staff for my state senator to prepare
legislation for next year's session on implementing ranked choice voting.
The draft will go to legislative counsel by the end of September for
formatting as a proper legislative bill. At minimum there will be a hearing
-- with public testimony -- by the Senate Rules Committee. Whether more can
be accomplished next session remains to be determined. One of the
requirements for the system is that the software used to count votes and do
the instant run-offs be open source.

   Very true. Which supports doing some things to make voting security as
much of a non-issue as possible.

Best regards,

Rich
