Ranked Choice Voting in NYC

New York City is still tallying its election results for a new Mayor.  This year they tried Ranked Choice Voting.  What does that mean? How does that work?  What are the ramifications of this sort of voting? Do you think that this will be a fairer and more positive way of electing a Mayor?

Students experiment with the technique of tallying the votes using our flow chart and make some observations and decisions about the process.
