The Charter Commission, which has been drafting a new constitution for the city of Las Vegas, has been getting mixed messages from the City Council.
Everyone involved in the drafting of the charter agrees on one thing: Winners of mayoral and council races must have the support of a majority of voters.
But they part ways over how to make this happen.
Last month, the council voted 2-1 in favor of instant runoffs, in which voters rank candidates in a single election. That results in a candidate with a majority, the idea’s supporters contend.
