Research and advice on methods of voting and election


When voting by means of Sequential Choice or Fund Voting, the voter expresses his choice in a more detailed fashion than is possible by merely writing a cross next to ones choice as is the case with ordinary voting. In a Sequential Choice election the voter ranks the candidates or the alternatives by writing numbers or letters next to them (1, 2, 3, 4, etc. or a, b, c, d, etc.). In Fund Voting the voter assigns numbers to the individual alternatives as tokens of the number of votes he is prepared to spend on each of them.
