IRV unconsitutiona;?

Anthony said that equal protection under
the law means that eveyone's favorite
candidate must win, or that it could be
so interpreted. Pehaps by Anthony.

Perhaps Anthony hasn't heard that that
equal protection clause has been applied
to voting rights.

Saying that everyone's favorite candidate
must win isn't like saying that everyone's
voted preferences must be counted. For
one thing, of course, it would be impossible
for everyone's favorite candidate to win in
any meaningful sense.

Californians have just passed a state
constitutional amendment requiring that
everyone's vote must be counted, suggesting
that not only is that possible, but it's also
considered reasonablle.
