An analysis of RCV in Alaska from the conservative R Street Institute found that elections became “more civil and competitive” and caused little disruption for voters or elected officials. Nevertheless, Palin is not alone in being unhappy about the change. A number of Republicans complain that vote-counting under RCV is slow, the process confuses voters, and it undermines both outcomes and the traditional party system. Ken Cuccinelli, a former Virginia attorney general and now head of the Election Transparency Initiative, claims RCV is “designed to rig elections in favor of liberal incumbents and defeat conservative challengers.”
