[EM] Ted: Regarding Poll

May I suggest that you also include a 3-slot ballot option? I.e.,
Preferred, Acceptable, Reject. You could call it a Fallback Approval
ballot if you like.
Many methods (e.g., most Condorcet methods, ER-Bucklin) that don't
meet the Participation criterion will do so when restricted to
3-slots. It would be interesting to compare behavior with that level
I'd considered that too: A _genenral_ 3-slot election, alongside the
unlimited ranking election.
Distinct from the MCA, MTA, MTAOC and MCAOC voting options in the Approval
election, this would be a separate general 3-slot election.
So then there would be four elections:
Approval, Score, 3-Slot, and Unlimited Rankings.
I have no objection to that.
The putting-together of a poll such as this poll must of course include others'
suggestions, not just those of the poll-proposer. And so the separate
general 3-slot election, as one of the four listed above should be
considered part of the poll-specification.
