Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill excludes the election of Governor, State Senator and State House representative from being required to use ranked-choice voting in general and special elections, but keeps it for United States Senator and United States Representative to Congress. It also keeps it for for all 5 positions for primary elections. Implementation is delayed until elections held after December 1, 2019, so no appropriations are required in this bill. 
Additional cost to the Department of Secretary of State associated with conducting a study and reporting the results can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
