Run-Off Election = Better Representation

It is common for the Republican Primary Election to have numerous candidates running for the same office. As Wyoming is largely a Republican majority state, the winner of the Primary often goes on to win the General Election. Often there are a number of people running in the Primary, so there have been many occasions when the winner of the Primary receives less than 50% of the vote, sometimes substantially less than 50%, which means that the Primary winner does not necessarily represent the majority’s values.

Adopting a run-off approach would ensure that the winner of the Primary receives more than 50% of the vote in order to advance to the General Election. A run-off assures that the prevailing candidate will best represent the values of the majority of Wyoming Republicans.
