Is everyone here aware of Score-Runoff Voting?


It's an amendment to Score meant to discourage Approval-style and
bullet-style strategic voting.  (It *encourages* expression of rankings, so
your vote counts in the runoff, but doesn't require them, allowing
expression of indifference and strong vs weak preferences, which are
impossible with ranked ballots.)

Score-ballot open primaries followed by a top-two runoff election would be
similar, in that it finds most-approved candidates and alleviates
nervousness, etc.
