Elections group needs volunteers

The Coalition for Instant Run-Off Voting needs volunteers to help get the word out on Election Day, Nov. 4. Volunteers stand outside of voting stations and, as voters exit, collect signatures on a petition to put Instant Run-Off Voting on the ballot in Brooksville for 2010. The local group is part of, a nonpartisan, nonprofit nationwide grass roots movement to allow voters to name their top three choices. With this type of voting, if there is no majority winner, the lowest candidate's ballots are recounted for voters' second choices and redistributed to the remaining candidates for a majority winner. To volunteer, contact Bill Gilbert at or (352) 442-7101.
