Wyoming Democrats implementing ranked-choice caucus voting
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) – The Wyoming Democratic Party is implementing a ranked-choice voting system for its presidential caucuses April 4.
Democrats in Alaska, Nevada, Hawaii and Kansas also are implementing ranked-choice voting.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports votes at the county level will be counted in stages. If one or more candidate gets less than 15% of the first-choice vote, the lowest-performing candidate will be taken out of the running.
Second-choice votes will then be allocated among the remaining candidates.
The process will repeat until all remaining candidates have more than 15%. Delegates will then be allocated in proportion to the votes for each candidate.
