Ranked Choice Voting in Massachusetts

I’m sure all of us have been in a situation, whether with a group of friends, in a group project, or somewhere else entirely, in which most people don’t want to do something, but everybody ends up doing it anyway. Maybe two friends want to go to the park, but you and three other friends […]
