Voting systems in Utah

Elections are fundamental to our society, but when multiple candidates run, different voting systems give very different results. Some systems are better than others. Many precincts in Utah use instant runoff voting. This is a good system if done correctly, but it is easy to do it wrong. And when it is done wrong, the results are often very unfair. I have written a little summary of the issues.
