Eugene uses Approval Voting for Referendums

Maybe they don't call it Approval in Eugene,
but read this description of an upcoming referendum election:

"UPCOMING DECISION POINT: November 6 election. Voters will be asked to consider two ballot measures. One measure asks voters to
authorize the West Eugene Parkway and explains the funding tradeoffs. A second measure asks voters to cancel the Parkway and seek
other solutions to west 11th transportation issues. If both measures pass, the one with the most votes will prevail. "

I think this is a good method for organizations to make
mutually exclusive decisions.. much better than IRV.
