Genevieve & Josh
51:33
There is an argument that RCV tends to elect extremist candidates (per Facebook). How so?
Eric and Lauren
51:43
In a multi-candidate election, when the first place candidate goes over 50% are their second place vote then counted? Does this concentrate power with the first place candidate?
Yaniv Sherman
54:25
does the #2 vote of everyone count or just of the last, losing candidate?
Steve Chessin (he/him) CfER
54:31
If in the first round of counting someone has a majority of the vote they win. One can continue the tally until only two candidates remain to get their true mandate, but that won’t change the winner.
Eric and Lauren

CJ Kingsley
