Instant Run-Off Voting

Instant run-off voting will be used in the ASI election for presidential candidates only.

Ballots are initially distributed based on each elector’s first preference. If a candidate secures more than half of the votes cast (51%), that candidate wins. Otherwise, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. Ballots assigned to eliminated candidates are recounted and assigned to one of the remaining candidates based on the next preference on each ballot. This process continues until one candidate wins by obtaining more than half the votes.
