Is anyone else using ranked choice voting?

Yes, in fact many communities across the country are either using or piloting ranked choice voting systems. This includes 23 cities in Utah for the 2021 general election. Ranked choice voting is also being used in Maine for federal and statewide elections (and municipal elections in the city of Portland); in Minnesota for elections in Minneapolis and St. Paul; in California for elections in Oakland, San Francisco, San Leandro, and Berkely; in New Mexico for elections in Santa Fe and Las Cruces; in Colorado for elections in Telluride; and various other states have adopted it and are in the implementation process.
