I'm sure there are some downfalls, but I like the idea of finding different ways to vote and I don't like the fact that my vote is not for who I want, but against who I don't want. I know this style of voting [instant run-off voting], and others, have been put to use in different cities across the world. Don't know what the citizens of these places think though, or the likely long-term implications for democracy and decision-making. I'm just trying to find a way to design a voting system that best reflects the diversity of opinion out there. I'm sure nothing will be perfect, but this seems like one possibility. Thoughts and suggestions?
