One of the under-reported stories of the 2020 election is that ranked choice voting was used for the first time in a US presidential election, in the state of Maine. A ranked ballot dramatically mitigates the "spoiler" effect of third party candidates (think Jill Stein 2016/Ralph Nader 2000).
There are good reasons to consider other voting methods, but RCV is a huge improvement over simple first-past-the-post voting. I hope we'll see it in more states soon.
@eloquence OTOH, Massachussetts rejected it by 55% https://boston.cbslocal.com/2020/11/04/massachusetts-election-2020-ballot-question-2-results/
