New York City to adopt ranked-choice voting

New York City on Tuesday became the latest to adopt ranked-choice voting, which allows voters to rank their top five candidates based on preference. New Yorkers overwhelmingly approved Ballot Question 1 - this will allow the city’s voters to begin using ranked-choice voting in local primary and special elections starting in 2021.

My state has this and I don't get it, I picked the candidate I support for reasons and so I vote for them, why do I have to list the other candidates I didn't vote for in order of preference?
