Welcome to the GraniteGeek's unscientific alternative-voting experiment!

Comparing results for voting methods: ranked choice, approval voting and plurality voting. (This is not an attempt to predict the results for January)

This is the pretend GOP primary ballot used for a GraniteGeek test of different voting formats. Participants could rank as many of these candidates as they wished. The results will be discussed in the Dec. 12, 2011, GraniteGeek column.
