If you watch it, take our Republican Presidential poll and weigh in on your preferred candidates.

The SC Small Business Chamber of Commerce and Better Ballot SC launched a rolling, monthly Presidential Primary poll this month using instant runoff voting (ranked choice voting).

We will be announcing the results for this monthly poll on September 1st.

The Republican Presidential poll can be found here: https://www.betterballotsc.org/republican-poll/

Not only will your vote send a signal to the candidates and media, you will also learn how instant runoff voting works to arrive at a consensus, majority winning candidate.

Here is a 90-second video tutorial on instant runoff voting (ranked choice voting).

After you vote, you will be able to see how the winner is arrived at without a runoff.

Under this growing-in-popularity election system, candidates must win with a majority of votes thus insuring that they have the support of most of the voters, unlike the common plurality election system when a candidate can win with less that 50% of the vote.

South Carolinians are encouraged to vote in every month’s new poll.

Good luck and have fun.
