Approval Voting vs. Plurality Voting
- Users of the Approval Voting method largely choose to vote for more than one candidate;
- Candidates showing scant support under Choose-one Plurality Voting are better represented under Approval Voting;
- Approval Voting is completely immune from the vote splitting spoiler effect ;
- Users of Choose-one Plurality Voting often support or oppose candidates by bullet voting (negative reinforcement of the spoiler effect).
- Approval Voting provides public guidance when office holders do not complete their terms.
- Choose-one Plurality voting can lead to voters abandoning their first choice in order to help a “lesser of evils” to win.
