Colorado petitioners are now trying to change the way we elect politicians. Once signatures are gathered, the initiative will be placed on the ballot that will end state funding for party primaries, allow all parties to nominate their candidates, and allow people to gather signatures to also be placed on the ballot. All registered voters will be allowed to vote for any candidate in the primary and, at least, the top three will advance to the general election in November. At the general election, voters can select and rank the three candidates they support. The winners go to an instant run-off until one candidate is supported by at least 50% of the people. It’s a remarkable process tat has great potential. Listen to the possibilities.
