Updated 11/18/2020: Ranked-choice voting initiatives were on the ballot in seven jurisdictions in November of 2020: six of those passed, and are now reflected in the quiz. Additionally, one jurisdiction that had previously adopted RCV used it for the first time in 2020. Lastly, Vancouver, WA has been removed. Three other Washington jurisdictions have recently passed laws similar to Vancouver's, none of which are actionable without a state law change. Ultimately, it does not make sense to list these, as RCV is not really awaiting implementation until the state law is updated.
