For those voters who selected the eliminated candidate, the candidate they ranked second is counted as their vote instead. But that doesn't change the state's constitution or resolve the conflict for state government races. For the June 12 primary, voters in Maine in three races—including the governor's race—weren't asked to just pick a winner. How did it all work out? A handful of American cities use this method for local elections—San Francisco just selected its mayor this way—but Maine is the first state to implement this system for statewide elections. I didn't get a blowjob the whole time we were together. He's the legal and policy director for FairVote. And if after hearing your side of the story, your mutual friends side with a person who pressured you to do something you were clear about not wanting to do and then, after you restated your opposition to performing said act, pressured you to perform the act—by physically forcing your head down to his cock—you can solve the "mutual friends" problem by cutting these so-called friends out of your life. If more voters prefer a third-party or independent candidate as their second choice, ranked-choice voting gives those candidates better odds of winning than they'd have otherwise. So in November, while ranked-choice voting will be used to determine the federal congressional races, it will not be used again to determine who the state's new governor will be, so it won't help the two state's two independent gubernatorial candidates. We even started joking about it right away. In order to win a ranked-choice race, a candidate needs not just a plurality of the vote, but a majority. In the Republican primary for the governor's seat, candidate Shawn Moody pulled in 56 percent in the first round of voting against the three other candidates.
