5. Go Maine!

Now we just need them to fix this so we can use it in the general election for governor, state senator, and state representative. For those who don't get why Mainers want this, we pretty always have independents that run, which results in splitting the votes 3 or more ways. LePage is a very unpopular governor, but he got elected twice with less than 50% of the vote each time. Plurality voting gives us unpopular and sometimes even extremist elected officials. Ranked choice gives us instant run off elections when no one has at least 50% of the vote.
