California Democratic Party Adds IRV to Platform

January 2004

On January 17-18, 2004, the California Democratic Party added the following paragraph to the Political Reform plank of its platform:

Alternative Voting Systems. Explore alternative voting systems including the use of instant runoff in special elections to fill vacancies to reduce both campaign and election expenses and in general elections to prevent well-meaning but misguided third-party voters from spoiling the election of Democrats.

The California Democratic Party Platform is downloadable from their website.
