This is an "instant runoff" poll, allowing voters to conveniently find a strongly supported winner from among many candidates, with minimal worries about "wasting" votes on weak candidates or "splitting" votes between similar candidates. Here's how it works:

  1. Each ballot is counted toward its highest-ranked remaining candidate.
  2. Does a candidate have a majority of counted votes?
    No: The last-place candidate is eliminated; go to step 1.
    Yes: The majority winner wins the election.

Tips:

  • Your lower choices won't hurt the chances of your higher choices.
  • You can't give two or more candidates the same rank.
  • Only the order of your ranked candidates matters, and not the actual numbers.
  • If you don't rank a candidate, it means you'd rather not have your vote count than have it count toward that candidate.
