A federal judge has rejected a challenge by Republican congressional candidate Bruce Poliquin to Maine's ranked choice voting system. Maine allows voters to rank up to four candidates in order of preference, giving them more ways to express their preferences. The judge said the system was “motivated by a desire to enable third-party and non-party candidates to participate in the political process, and to enable their supporters to express support, without producing the spoiler effect.”
