There are problems with elections in North Carolina.

Winning a primary requires only 30% of the votes. If no candidate earns 30%, we must return to the polls and pay for costly run-off elections. Winning a general election has NO required minimum. The most votes wins, even if well below 30%.

Also known as "Instant Runoff Voting", RCV is a simple upgrade that ensures winners earn true majority support.  Voters have the option of ranking candidates... easy as 1, 2, 3!  See how it works:
