I know the list focuses on technical aspects of voting rather than

ideologies.  However, are there any technical criteria for quantifying

just how polarizing a candidate is?  It would be interesting to evaluate

how various election methods work in the presence of polarizing

D- Perhaps some election *basics* should be sent to each new person who signs 
up on this list -- ???

Is a single winner choice tolerable to a majority ??? [Absolute test]

ALL the choices may be intolerable for some voters.

Rankings only show relative support.
