https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_transferable_vote putting the technical side (how to actually organize the vote) on the side for the minute, who can tell me why plurality voting is still more widely used than single transferable voting?
To me, this seems like the best way to do the whole democracy thing. Your vote wouldn't feel so wasted.
@whirli If someones vote is transfered, its like they got two votes! Unfair!
Wanna make an infographic or maybe an faq in markdown?
@whirli STV is hard for people to understand. The purpose of an election isn't to choose a leader, but to convince everyone that the leader was chosen in a fair way.
@whirli People I've spoken to never heard of it, never ever even entertained the idea of changing our electoral system. "What we've got works well enough. Give me convenience or give me death!"
@byllgrim that might be one of the reasons, yeah. I wish I could post you the link, but I read a longer thing on the threats to democracy and one was complacency. How democracy is seen as already somehow perfect, no need to try and better something that is already just fine.
