Vote Against: (Ranked Voting--Passed once ranked voting just needs 2nd vote to change Nevada voting)

By using ranked-choice voting, we’re putting our elections into the hands of the elite experts and computer programmers who created the algorithms that assign votes to candidates and determine a winner that, most times, is not one anyone wants.

-no limit to list of candidates so cout be up to 16 names

-people vote until one candidate gets 51% of the vote 

-if no candidate get 50% of the vote on the first round

-then the lowest number (bottom 2-5 candidates) of votes is even distributed between rest

-repeat process until one candidate gets that 51%

-You have no idea if it will be your favored candidate during the redistribution process. 

Nevada against Ranked-Choice Voting

(Bottom Line-A computer picks who will be in charge of your state-Vote NO!)
