The local Green Party has decided not to field candidates for city council this year. Instead, their energies will be focused on the ongoing Ann Arbor Instant Run-off Voting (IRV) campaign, hoping to follow on the heels of the successful IRV campaign in Ferndale. This weekend they’ll be gathering signatures to get the initiative on the ballot.



  1. Nice graphic. Got an Ann Arbor map for the background?

  2. Does Washington state have IRV?

  3. Dunno, but I stole that image from their campaign. :)

  4. No. Washington State does not currently use IRV for their elections. In point of fact, no state does, but many municipalities do; among the latest being San Francisco and nearby Ferndale.

    Ann Arbor did, once, in 1975, to elect Al Wheeler.
