"Final Five voting creates an open primary where the top five winners move onto the general and then the general is decided by rank choice voting is the gold standard in election reform. They just adopted it in Alaska, we can do it in New York!"

-Rep. Robert Carroll

NYS Assemblymember for the 44th District

"Politicians want to solve problems, they want to work across the aisle, but upon arrival they are told that they must fight in the trenches and avoid fraternizing with the enemy. They hate it, Americans hate it, and nobody wins. Final Five Voting can change that."

-Jonathan Haidt
