IRV for board of directors elections?Using a ranked choice voting system to elect our board members (in district) might help avoid an issue of concern to the recent District 2 nominating committee, whereby apparently eight candidates for the seat were whittled down to two so that there would be no risk of one candidate not getting the required margin to win (for example, a three- or four-way tie) and then having to go for a whole new shiny expensive runoff election.
Having elections using IRV would make it a lot easier to give us a wide choice of candidates, but it would mean amending the bylaws. What do you think? Is this something we should do?
Might help avoid dodgy-appearing problems in the future as well as save money.
