Save IRV Memphis, a grassroots coalition opposed to repealing the instant runoff voting (IRV) provision, made a public display of that opposition on Tuesday at the IBEW 474 Hall.
Save IRV Memphis Spokesperson Theryn C. Bond said this is not an issue that is split by party affiliations.
“This is a collective effort across party lines,” Bond said. “In November we want you to say no to repealing IRV and term limits.”
In 2008, the Memphis Charter Review Commission unanimously voted to place a pro-IRV referendum on the ballot. In a citywide referendum election, voters supported IRV by 71 percent.
