  Chilean presidential election, 2005-2006 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
None of the four candidates received an absolute majority, thus a runoff election among the top two candidates —Michelle Bachelet from the Coalition of Parties for Democracy and Sebastián Piñera from National Renewal— was held on Sunday, January 15, 2006.
The 2005 Chilean parliamentary election was held in conjunction with the presidential election.
In previous elections the candidates presented independently by the pact's parties were consistently in third place, behind the two major coalitions, and holding poll numbers in the single-digit level.

 Election Administration   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
The Department of Justice contends that there is not enough time between the primary and the runoff elections for military personnel to exercise their right to vote in the primary runoff.
While election laws and their administration are not as high-profile or glamorous as state troopers, prisons or highways, in no area do we need the influence of statesmen and stateswomen more than in the system that provides legitimacy to everything else our government does.

 Runoff Primary Election Cost Saving Measures
Based on unofficial election night returns, it appears certain that both parties will be conducting runoffs for statewide and district offices.
Before deciding on the type of voting system to be used in the runoff election, the county chair should weigh the cost of conducting a paper ballot election versus the cost of conducting an electronic voting system election.
In any case, the number of administrative workers used in conducting the runoff election should be greatly reduced.

 IT'S NEWSOM VS. GONZALEZ / Headed for runoff: S.F.'s 2 top vote-getters face off Dec. 9
Eclipsed by the Oct. 7 gubernatorial recall election, the campaign only caught fire with the public and in the press in the last three weeks - despite dozens of public appearances by the contenders since Labor Day and, in some cases, months earlier.
Now the question is whether the losers who focused their attacks on Newsom in the general election will unite in an attempt to defeat the front-running moderate.
Even Newsom, who was endorsed by Brown and got his supervisor's job as an appointee of the mayor before winning election on his own three times, hit the campaign trail with the message that he is the candidate representing change.

 NEWSOM: 'THE TIME FOR CHANGE IS HERE' / TIGHT RACE: Strong bid by Gonzalez falls short
Gavin Newsom, riding voter frustration with homelessness and fueled by nearly $4 million in campaign contributions, won election Tuesday as San Francisco's 42nd mayor in a campaign viewed as a test of strength for the city's dominant Democratic Party organization.
Newsom, a moderate member of the Board of Supervisors promoted as the new face of the Democratic establishment, was backed by endorsements from Democrats at all levels of government and supported by dozens of unions and real estate and major downtown corporate interests in defeating Matt Gonzalez, the progressive board president.
Gonzalez argued that Brown was more interested in political patronage and high-profile development projects than taking care of the needs of the city's impoverished, working class and artists living on the fringe of the mainstream.

 FairVote - IRV America
North Carolina will begin to use instant runoff voting for statewide elections for judicial office vacancies and to let 10 cities and 10 counties try IRV starting in 2007.
Voters were three times more likely to say voting with instant runoff voting (IRV) was easy than it was difficult, and preferred IRV over the old two-round runoff system by a margin of three to one -- support that extended to every group of voters as defined by party, race, gender, age and neighborhood.
On July 18th, the night before H1024 was passed by the state Senate, the City Council of Oakland (CA) voted 6-2 to place IRV on the November ballot, folding their current two rounds of voting into one high turnout majority election in November.
