Richard already answered about how to sign the declaration (just say so
here, and give any additional info such as credentials or favorite system,
though arguments of why are out-of-place.)

It recommends 4 methods. If for some reason you don't want to just
read it<http://www.bansinglemarkballots.org/>,
here's my summary:

> Approval
> Range or Score Voting
> Majority Judgement (median point totals)

You missed Condorcet (does not specify which form)

It also mentions 2 others:

> SODA (simple optionally delegated Approval)

In the declaration, SODA is mentioned as "too soon to recommend but merits
further study".


The declaration mentions both advantages and disadvantages of IRV, and says
that there are both signers who support and those who oppose the system.
