Meanwhile, in Maine, voters approved a ballot measure that will transform the way voting occurs in the state and will open the door for more third-party candidates. The measure approves ranked-choice voting, which means people can vote for their choice of candidates in order. If their first-choice candidate does not win, their vote automatically defaults to their second-choice candidate, and so on. Maine becomes the first state in the nation to approve this style of voting, which will be used for both state and federal elections.
