Instant Runoff Voting in Action

I recieved a ballot for the co-op I belong to today. My co-op gives grants from its after-tax profits to non-partisian, non-sectarian orgainizations which further its basic goals. The election for this year's seven options is an instant runoff vote with three choices. It's the first time I've ever seen an instant runoff election in action. It works out pretty nice: you just rank your top three choices.
