Who'd have thought that one of the most effective ways to make voting more representative is simply to remove the rule "you must only vote for one candidate"

@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

@cy @cjd
>like IRV but multiple seats

that's STV

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.
