I see from your response to the Electowiki "Method support poll" that
you "nearly support" the ER-Bucklin(whole) single-winner method,
and that for "Legislative election methods" you like "possibly a
proportional approval scheme".
What do you think of this PR version of ER-Bucklin(whole) ?
"Voters rank candidates, truncatation and equal-ranking ok.
The winning threshold to elect the first winner is a Droop quota
(number of valid ballots/number of seats +1).
(1) Commence the ER-Bucklin(whole) process until the candidate with the
highest score has a winning threshold.
Declare that single candidate elected.
(2) Reduce the weight of all the ballots that contributed to the
winner's tally by an equal amount which sums to a Droop quota.
(3) Based on these reweighted ballots, the reduced number of unfilled
seats, and not counting as valid any now exhausted ballots,
reset the Droop quota.
(4) Repeat the above three steps until all the seats are filled."
