Proponents of ranked-choice voting or RCV, which was overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2019, argue that this system allows voters to support the candidate they most prefer rather than “wasting” a vote on a candidate with little chance of winning or strategically voting for a candidate with a better chance of victory. It also requires candidates to reach broader audiences rather than stay in their “lane,” and is believed to discourage negative campaigning. But some candidates have raised concerns that the new system, absent a sustained effort at voter education, may disenfranchise voters of color and spark confusion at polling places.
Or, as they mean but aren’t saying, the block folks are too damn dumb to count to five.
Then again, given that most of those blacks have had to suffer NYC’s most, most, progressive public school system perhaps they’re right at that.
But joking aside look at that claim. Blacks hardest hit by slightly complicated voting system. You what?
