Runoff elections


Recommended Posts

After the 2000 election, petitions circulated in Oregon to make an "instant runoff" system for the Presidential election. This would have entailed that you vote (in the same election, same ballott) for your first preference, then select your second preference if your first choice didn't come in as one of the top 2 vote recipients. This would only have kicked in if the top 2 didn't get a clear majority of the total votes cast. (this did not make the ballott).

Also, some state and local elections boards call for a run-off election in local races under these circumstances. This would be helpful in crafting state-only scenarios.

Just in case some states implement this in the future for presidential elex and to help us create realistic local (statewide) scenarios; run-offs should be looked at very closely as to increase the game's realism.
