    I did vote required by feds - but only for federal elected officials - ie President, senator, congressman.

    They should all be elected on an equal footing.

    For example, in some elections, with the IRV, only the top two candidates are considered for the "second ballot" voting; while in others, the last place candidate is dropped, and the system continues until a candidate receives the minimum of 50%+1

    For State and local elections, allow that level of government decide.

    Runoff elections are expensive. It would save many tax dollars. It would allow 3rd party people to vote their conscience and then choose between the two "real" candidates.
