@cjd there are many types of ranked voting:
@cjd turns out that some people use "Ranked Choice Voting" in capital letters as a more specific term to refer to IRV, but that's misleading as fuck, they should come up with a better name
both are examples of ranked voting methods. But there are also other ranked voding methods, such as Borda or Schulze, which select one winner but work differently than IRV. Referring to IRV and/or IRV as "the Ranked Choice Voting" is misleading and makes people think there are no other ranked voting rules.
