On Tuesday Oct. 6, the Long Beach City Council will hold a special meeting at 3:30 p.m. in City Hall (333 W. Ocean Blvd) to determine whether instant-runoff voting should be placed on the ballot for voters to consider as a city charter amendment. An article in the Long Beach Press-Telegram (h/t Ballot Access News) lays out the pros and cons.
The Libertarian Party platform says: "We support electoral systems that are more representative of the electorate at the federal, state and local levels. We oppose laws that effectively exclude alternative candidates and parties, deny ballot access, gerrymander districts, or deny the voters their right to consider all legitimate alternatives."
2009-10-07 update: The council made no decision, and is reported to be split 4-5 against IRV.
