I am just curious. This is just a thought-experiment. I see nothing wrong with Score-Voting. My biggest problem with Majority-Judgement is that it needs more testing. This is what I advocate:
0. Remove the overvote rule, thus turning Plurality-Voting into Approval Voting.
1. Expand the range from 0 to 1 to from negative -99 to positive +99, thus turning Approval Voting into Score-Voting.
While a tried to explain advanced voting to PegaSisters and Bronies, I had an interesting idea. I am almost ready to submit my idea to the mailing list Electoral Methods. I definitely do not advocate the adoption of a voting system I just pulled out of mine ass —— evidently, we just went from ponies to asses ;-) —— last week. The idea was combining the expressivity of Score-Voting with the resistance to tactical voting of Majority-Judgement.
