Utah Senate rejects effort to end ranked choice voting

Utah’s experiment with ranked choice voting will continue after a bill that would have ended the pilot program two years early failed to pass. HB290, sponsored by Rep. Katy Hall, R-South Ogden, was rejected by the Utah Senate in a 12-15 vote Thursday afternoon. It had previously passed the House of Representatives. Supporters of repealing the program early argued that ranked choice voting – in which voters rank candidates by preference – is confusing and leads to a lack of trust in the election process.
