RCV - where you rank your preferred options and when all ballots are submitted, the winner is the option that obtains 50% + 1.
Example: There are 100 voters, and 53 rank Option A as first choice - then Option A wins.
Ex: If my first choice (Option A) was eliminated in the first round, then my second choice vote (Option B) is added to the original votes for that Option.
Option A: Traditional view
Option B: Progressive view
Option C: Compromise (leaning trad?)
Option D: Compromise (leaning prog?)
(I put ? marks because the “lean” in compromise views not obvious)
A process that was described as “listening to the Spirit” was, I suspect, a very human and flawed voting exercise that elevated division.
