To The Editor: Maine voters from both parties have a historic opportunity in June—we will be the first voters in any state to rank our preferences for candidates in a state primary, thanks to the efforts of the multi-partisan Committee for Ranked Choice Voting in Maine. Democrats will have seven candidates to choose from, while Republicans will have four. You can rank all the gubernatorial candidates in your party from number one to number seven (or four), or choose to rank just your top candidates. In other words, you only need to rank the candidates you would like to see win, starting with your number one choice. The great news is that ranked choice voting will ensure we elect the candidates who are preferred by the majority of voters in each party.
