Resolution to Oppose Ranked Choice Voting

WHEREAS, Traditional American primary and general elections ensure that voters who support one candidate, not a plurality of candidates, are heard clearly while ranked choice voting schemes open elections to ' ballot exhaustion' or the disenfranchisement of voters who choose not to support multiple candidates who do not clearly represent their values;

WHEREAS, States and communities where ranked choice voting has been tested have consistently decreased voter participation in those communities and in many cases the elections have resulted in more discarded votes than counted votes;

WHEREAS, Ranked choice voting often results in additional tabulation delays resulting in days or weeks of additional counting while depending exclusively on technology without traceable ballots to support determined winners;

BE IT RESOLVED, the Wyoming Republican Party rejects ranked choice voting and similar schemes.
