Ranked Choice Voting

(image: RepresentUs)

This week on CounterSpin: The November 5 elections had some big news: Virginia Democrats flipping both houses of the state legislature and, as we record, something very much still happening in the race for Kentucky governor. Other results, outside the spotlight, could have even more abiding impact on what government looks like, including the passage of a ballot initiative here in New York City that will change the way we vote. We’ll talk about ranked choice voting, how it works and what it could mean with Rob Richie of the group FairVote.

Trump with police chiefs

Also on the show: After Donald Trump’s appearance at a conference of police chiefs, a wire reporter wrote, presumably with a straight face: “Trump concluded his speech by signing an executive order creating a commission to study the root causes of crime and implement the best ideas immediately.” That raises roughly a billion questions, but media didn’t ask any of them—even as Trump simultaneously announced a frightening escalation in police militarization he suggested be called “The Surge.” We’ll talk about that with Netfa Freeman of the Institute for Policy Studies.
