Hi <<First Name>>!
For those who followed our campaign, you can see that we successfully hit our goal. Thank you! We also had to switch our polling contractor. Fortunately, our new partner is the prestigious international polling company, GfK. They'll be running our voting methods poll the week leading up to the elections. We'll get the data back a week later, and it'll take us another week to do basic analysis on the data.
We also wrote an article on Maine's ballot measure for ranked choice voting, which offered a positive though very cautious assessment. We have mixed feelings about that particular method, but we appreciated that it was in comparison to the status quo, plurality voting—which is terrible. Bangor Daily News also dug up one of the positive nuggets we had to say about ranked choice voting.
