This is the narrow view. One could consider the term "election
method" to be broader than that.
The broadest definition would be the process by which a group of
people come to a common decision. Obviously, nomination, as we
understand it, is part of this process.
Or you could confine "election method," as Chris does, to a very
specific kind of process, perhaps requiring a ballot, with the
contents of the ballot as a given.
Given that my interest is in actual systemic reform, my own interest
is with the broad concept of methods of social choice.
