But, Demorep, do you have to use the expression "1-person-1-vote"?
That's another way of saying the method has to be Plurality, or
maybe IRO, though it would admittedly permit Plurality With Withdrawals
and IRO With Withdrawals.

"1-person-1-vote" is used to argue against rank-balloting counted
pairwise, and against my easy, but maybe a little cowardly, 
Approval proposal, and related point systems. How about, instead,
saying "equal voting power for each voter".
D-- The phrase "1-person-1-vote" was obviously used to be the historical
opposite of "the few (rich or gerrymander) persons with all/most of the votes
and the many other persons with zero/partial votes".   Perhaps now-- 1 [adult]
person, N equal votes ???
