Ranked voting

Most developed nations have multiple political parties, not just two. Protecting voters against the “wasted third-party vote” syndrome could be accomplished with ranked voting or alternative voting.

With ranked choice voting, if your first choice doesn’t win, your vote goes to your second choice; if your second choice doesn’t win, your vote goes to your third choice.

    John says, “What if we could have a negative vote? We could vote against a candidate we didn’t like. It wouldn’t be an affirmation for the other main party. If this were to happen, Trump and Clinton would have negative numbers. Johnson or Stein would be in the WH with 5% of the vote.”
