TIL there are multiple ranked voting systems: Positional, Condorcet, Instant-Runoff, Single transferable

My brain is swimming right now

Also, Condorcet seems to be the most mathematically complex. I couldn't fathom trying to implement this is in excel

Oh, I forgot Cardinal voting wherein you independently give each candidate a grade like it's a fucking final exam or something

Are you looking at #votingSystems in general or specifically at ranking ones?
If you go for general, I warmly recommend the Majority Judgment!
