Hi all,

Long time no see -- I was active here a couple years ago[1].  I'm  
writing to ask your help encouraging Unity08[2] to implement some  
form of ranked-choice voting (aka "Preferential Voting"):


rather than the usual first-past-the-post system they're currently  


Because of their use of Internet technology, and the large number of  
candidates expected, this seems an ideal forum for promoting more  
balanced election methods.

If you are a U.S. citizen, and you agree with me, I'd appreciate your  
help.  If you have any suggestions for how to concisely pitch the  
idea to them, that would also be welcome.


Best wishes,
-- Dr. Ernie
