As much as I dislike FairVote and their use of the term "RCV", in this case
it means "single transferable vote", which I understand to be a
more-or-less decent proportional representation system.  In single-rep
states, it devolves into instant-runoff voting, and using PR in lots of
5-member districts means it will still be two-party dominated compared to a
single 435-member district, but it's not terrible?
