Anyone know to what this refers:

Under Bowen's stewardship, San Francisco will experiment with new
software in November. It's one of the few cities already using instant-
runoff voting, a system that lets voters rank candidates in order of
preference instead of choosing just one. The rankings data can be used
to determine a winner if no candidate receives a majority of the vote.

The system SF uses in November is Sequoia, I believe.
