The easiest way to get IRV-ready equipment is to require ranked choice capability readiness in new equipment purchases. If your jurisdiction is purchasing new equipment to replace outdated machines, add security or disability access features , or comply with state or federal guidelines, this is the most cost-efficient time to meet current or future ranked choice needs. The links at left provide information on adding ranked choice readiness language to legislation and requests for proposals (RFP's).
If your jurisdiction is not planning on purchasing new equipment in the near future, you can still get ready to run IRV elections at a reasonable cost. Some voting equipment can be made IRV-ready through software upgrades without need to replace hardware. Use the links at left for information on equipment available from vendors and equipment used by jurisdictions running IRV elections.
