The Millstone Power Station provides over 47 percent of Connecticut’s electricity, and over 90 percent of its carbon-free electricity. It is Connecticut’s only nuclear power plant and it will help us understand why ranked-choice voting, or RCV, is so important.
Gov. Ned Lamont recently received the endorsement of the Griebel-Frank for CT Party, putting him on another line on November’s ballot. This endorsement was conditioned on the governor introducing legislation to implement ranked-choice voting, also known as instant run-off elections. To understand why this is so important to the health of our democracy, it is helpful to use Millstone as an analogy. Don’t worry, I won’t be getting into the mechanics of RCV.
