I swear my next blog post was going to be about how unfortunate it is that the District of Columbia isn’t using Instant Runoff Voting in the upcoming council election. As it happened, though, I had work to do and then Dave Alpert at Greater Greater Washington not only beat me to the punch but actually created an IRV-based poll on his website. Touché.

I guess the only thing I’d add to that is that the ridiculousness of all this is further compounded by the fact that DC’s municipal elections are partisan.
