Thank you for participating in our survey and for your time. Ranked choice elections allow voters to choose candidates in order from first choice to last choice. One way to determine the winner is to count ballots in multiple rounds in which last-place candidates are eliminated until a candidate wins by majority. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Greens, and Libertarians have supported ranked choice voting in elections from Maine to California.

This survey will ask you about how you voted in 2016 and how you would have voted if presidential ranked voting was possible. It will also ask for your opinion on ranked voting, for your zip code and for some other information about you. Many participants have completed this survey in less than 5 minutes. 

This study is not trying to question the actual outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. It is trying to answer the following questions:
  • "What would have happened in 2016 if ranked voting was used?", and 
  • "Should the United States use ranked voting in the future?"
We value your honesty and privacy very much. Connections between personal information such as zip code and your answers will only be released or published in a way that will protect your privacy.

We will request your email address to provide periodic updates on our research, but connections between your identity and your answers will not be viewed by anyone on our research team, and these connections will be protected with strong passwords and security procedures. 

You are not required to answer every question, but each answer will help other citizens and politicians make better choices about ranked choice voting in the future. You also can exit the survey at any time by clicking on the "Exit now" button at the upper right of each page.
