Newsmakers: Changing the Way Wisconsin Votes – Final Five Voting
On February 14, 2022, Newsmakers Host Lisa Pugh sat down with two Wisconsin State Senators, Democrat Jeff Smith and Republican Dale Kooyenga, to discuss final five voting. On the eve of Wisconsin’s February Primary election we highlight an effort to change the way Wisconsin selects U.S. Senate and Congressional candidates. Final Five Voting would ensure that the top five vote getters in a primary advance to the general election where they would then be ranked by voters. It’s an effort that’s gaining traction across the country. Many are hopeful the change would lead to politicians who legislate in a manner that reflects the interests of a larger share of the electorate and increase bi-partisanship.
