ME considers ranked choice voting for governor races

Maine is expected to vote in the state Legislature this month to elect its governor using ranked-choice voting, potentially becoming the second state to elect its governor using the new method. Alaska is the only state that currently uses ranked-choice voting to elect its governor, but both Maine and Alaska use the ranked-choice voting in presidential and congressional primaries. Supporters of ranked-choice voting say it deters “spoiler” candidates and encourages cooperation, civility, and moderation.
