The Vermont legislature has approved a bill to make the state the first in the nation to use instant-runoff voting for congressional elections. Before you get too excited, however, note that Vermont Governor Jim Douglas isn't supportive of the idea. The legislation didn't pass with a veto-proof majority.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
