⸘Howdy‽

Fargo may adopt the good Voting System Approval Voting.* Expect the Fair-Vote People to do everything in their power to stop this (Fair Vote pushes the bad voting system Instant Runoff Voting which transfers all votes to the top-2 parties, thus being a falser reform designed to ensure 2-party domination).

Here is the story:

* Instructions for Approval Voting:

0. Find the worst and best candidates.
1. Approve all candidates closer to the best candidate than the worse candidate.
2. Leave unknown Candidates unapproved.

¡Peace!

Howdy yourself,

Yes, you are (mostly) right about IRV or Alternative Vote. The
Australians, who have it, say that it just puts the post in first past
the post. But I get the impression that approval voting is just
cumulative voting rebranded, where x-votes count against each other:
more is less. Pot calls kettle black.
Ranked choice is a necessary tho not sufficient condition of "effective
voting."
I have my own axes to grind on electoral reform and research.
A natural concern about IRV (not entirely foreign to this email group)
is that the public will throw the baby of ranked choice voting out with
the bath-water of simple plurality counting, when they find out IRV does
not make much difference.
