Most Americans are not being represented by either political party, and we do not have a voice to unite our concerns. The chance to have ranked-choice voting will mean the chance of ending of the extremely limited two-party system. Having the choice to cast our votes elsewhere without worrying about the prospect of "spoiler candidates" will go a long way to make sure that Americans are truly being represented.
About Ranked-Choice Voting
Ranked-choice voting is a type of voting method used in elections with more than two candidates. Instead of indicating support for only one candidate, voters in ranked-choice elections can rank the candidates in order of preference.
Ballots are initially counted for each voter's top choice. If a candidate has more than half of the vote based on first-choices, that candidate wins. If not, then the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. The voters who selected the defeated candidate as a first choice then have their votes added to the totals of their next choice. This process continues until a candidate has more than half of the votes.
When the field is reduced to two, it has become an "instant runoff" that allows a comparison of the top two candidates head-to-head. Compared to plurality voting, ranked-choice can reduce the effect of vote-splitting when multiple candidates earn support from like-minded voters.
