The Ranked-Choice Voting Measure Falls Short

Another major petition campaign that would have dramatically changed the course of Missouri’s election failed to gather enough signatures for the November ballot. Questions that could have given voters priority votes failed to garner enough signatures in all eight congressional districts, Ashcroft said.

Led by the Better Elections campaign, the proposal will allow voters to rank their preferences for candidates in the general election. A candidate is elected if he or she receives a majority of the votes as the leading candidate. Otherwise, the top candidate with the fewest selection votes is eliminated, and the remaining selection votes are distributed among the remaining candidates according to their ranking.

The candidate who wins the majority wins the election. Better Elections spokesman Scott Charton said in a statement: “We are disappointed, but we are determined to give voters better and more choices in elections and hold politicians accountable when they make mistakes. We remain committed to our core mission of inflicting damages and ensuring the integrity of elections.”
