Shouldn't Talk To Santa Clara?

Not sure who you would talk to at this stage of the game.  The election
is only a couple of weeks away, and it might be years before the county
supervisors have an opportunity to act on this measure.

This ballot measure doesn't actually implement any election method. 
It's more about giving the county an incentive to purchase voting
equipment capable of supporting ranked balloting, whenever the current
equipment is replaced.  One of the criticisms of the measure is that
"Instant Runoff" is not actually defined in the proposal, so that
implementation is left up to the board of supervisors.
