Dr. King and Mr. Turk,
Q: Will the Rules Committee consider adopting "Preferential" (ranked-choice) or "Approval" (one-vote-per-candidate) voting methods for either the initial or final rounds, in order to:
i) reduce the need for strategic (vs. sincere) voting
ii) increase the likelihood of finding a consensus candidate (vs. the one with strongest partisan support)
as described in the online discussion thread.
