Voting system proposal: Single Transferable Vote (STV) ¶
For this topic, I am assuming that the Asgardian government will be a representative democracy. This assumption might be wrong and if anyone wants to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of representative democracy, please start a new topic.
If we are to election representatives for government, I would like to suggest the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system. I have worked in elections using similar forms of preferential/alternative voting and it is significantly more fair that many other systems. It’s also very easy and satisfying to count because you can literally see people's choices being represented.
This video give a good explanation of how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8XOZJkozfI
Does anyone disagree with this style of voting?
