WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

In November, Sarasota became the first city in Florida to approve an Instant Runoff voting system. An overwhelming 78 percent voted for the different style of voting, which is being adopted by more communities in the U.S. Now those same grassroots organizers are trying to get the entire county of Sarasota to adopt the procedure.

Anthony Lorenzo is with the Coalition for Instant Runoff Voting, the activist group that spearheaded the effort in 2007.

I would like to add that this initiative also limits contributions to natural born persons for County elections, in effect banning business and corporate contributions. I forgot to mention that about the Sarasota County initiative on the news broadcast. Thanks to the WMNF crew for giving our commUNITY a voice as well!
