Las Cruces would follow Santa Fe after our state's capital was the first city to utilize the method in March to select its next mayor. Essentially, voters don't stop at just ticking off the box next to their desired candidate; they rank all the candidates in order of their preference. 

As the ballots are counted, the votes of last place finishers in the election get added to the totals of "higher-ranked" candidates.

Las Cruces city councilors will discuss the ordinance at a June meeting.
