Maryland needs ranked choice voting

- — Paul Nelson, Annapolis

Recent primary results have shown our previously sleepy state has become significan­tly more polarized (“What happened in Maryland politics over the weekend?” July 25).

I call on the Maryland’s Republican and Democratic parties, and the state legislatur­e to institute ranked choice voting which encourages moderation and ensures that all winning candidates have been selected by a majority of the voters.

Please, let’s do this now before our state descends into a shouting match of warring parties!
