Voting with the choice voting form of proportional representation -- a system that makes sense for non-partisan elections -- is simple. Here are the key steps in casting an effective ballot.
1. You decide which candidates you would like to see elected.
2. You rank those candidates in order of preference -- knowing that a lower choice will never hurt the chances of a higher choice.
That's it! Your vote will be counted toward the highest candidate on your ranked list who can be helped by your vote. As many people as mathematically possible will elect one person -- most voters will help elect one of their top two choices.
