Political Science Professors' Research on Ranked-Choice Voting Cited

Thursday, January 11, 2018
BEYOND CHRON (SAN FRANCISCO) -- The notion that minority voters do not rank their ballots is untrue. For example, a study conducted by San Francisco State University Professor Richard DeLeon using precinct to data showed that there is no proof that Asian American voters had more difficulties with ranked choice voting than other racial groups, including white voters. Further, SFSU Professors Francis Neely and Corey Cook found that, “the tendency to rank three candidates was consistently more common in precincts where more Asian Americans reside.”
