LS: Cooperation across party lines is no longer possible. Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) must be implemented by ballot measure. This will get rid of our dysfunctional Two Party System. Maine has made this electoral change. Alaska, Massachusetts, and possibly Arizona will have the opportunity to do so in 2020. When will Texas join this revolution
