  1. Approval voting

    Approval voting is a single-winner voting system used for elections. Each voter may vote for as many of the candidates as the voter wishes. The winner is the candidate receiving the most votes. Each voter may vote for any combination of candidates and may give each candidate at most one vote. Approval voting treats each candidate as an essentially separate question, "Do you approve of this person for the job?" Each voter may cast one vote per candidate, either for or against, and whoever receives the most 'Yes' votes wins. The system was described in 1976 by Guy Ottewell and also by Robert J. Weber, who coined the term "approval voting." It was more fully published in 1978 by political scientist Steven Brams and mathematician Peter Fishburn.
