INSTANT RUNOFF VOTING
Third Parties in General would be aided by elections using instant runoff voting. This would allow a voter to put down (say) Ralph Nader as first choice but a more mainstream candidate as second choice. If no one gets 50% of the vote, the second choice of the canditates with few votes would have his votes added to the second choice. IRV is hard to explain in a few words, but it has a lot of benefits. The detriment is that it requires computers and the integrity of the computers is paramount. Tom parks
