“This reflects a common theme identified during voter outreach efforts, where many voters expressed the belief that ‘bullet voting’ would help a preferred candidate to advance in a race where additional rounds of tabulation were required,” the report said.

Voters split on ranked choice

An accompanying survey of 800 residents found that voters are somewhat split on their opinions of ranked-choice voting. Forty-one percent said they prefer the traditional voting system, followed by 39 percent who prefer ranked-choice voting and 17 percent who did not have a preference.

Fifty-three percent of respondents said ranked-choice voting should be used in future municipal elections, however. Thirty-seven percent said it should not.
