With software, providing such a feature would be trivial. Each 
candidate could provide their preferred ranking, a Political Party 
could provide theirs, various political groups could provide theirs, 

The voter could select one of these rankings or would always have the 
option of doing it themselves...some voters will take the time to 
educate themselves.
