Senator John McCain
“Instant runoff voting will lead to good government because voters will elect leaders who have the support of a majority. Elected leaders will be more likely to listen to all and cities will be able to enjoy big tax savings and keep majority rule.” ~Senator John McCain
John McCain endorses IRV in AlaskaAugust 2002
Hello this is Senator John McCain. I’m calling to urge your support for Ballot Measure 1 on the August 27th primary election. As a presidential candidate and as a senator, I’ve worked hard to open up the political process for all Americans. Ballot Measure 1 will adopt a fairer voting method called instant runoff voting that will lead to good government because Alaska will elect leaders who have the support of a majority of voters. With Measure 1, elected leaders will be more likely to listen to all Alaskans and cities like Anchorage and Fairbanks will be able to enjoy big tax savings and keep majority rule. Measure 1 has support from independent voters and political parties all across the political spectrum. Please see Alaskansforvotersrights.com for more info and please vote “Yes” on Measure 1 on August 27th.
