Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Spring 2004 OCT Elections: Procedure and Call for Nominations

there's something called a runoff that is standard practice in these situations.


I am in favor of letting Caroline and Andrew decide which
of them wants to do it (or request a runoff if that's what they would prefer to do).
Would a runoff election (I don't know the term, sorry), mean to have a new election just between the two with one vote for each voter? If yes, I'd favour for any method to avoid this as we should not put too much strain on the electorate (though I do agree it is standard procedure).
