50RZ3, The Fleshing Out IRV Act

WHEREAS Senate elections are now conducted using Ranked Choice Voting, and

WHEREAS There is some concern that there are not enough specifics regarding how RCV is to be implemented, and

WHEREAS I guess I better write some specifics

THEREFORE, the following provisions shall be added to el Lexhatx:

B.14: In accordance with Org.IV.6, Ranked Choice Voting shall be conducted in the following manner:
B.14.1: Voters shall rank the candidates for Senator for their province in order of preference. Voters may rank as many or as few candidates as they please.
B.14.2: At the conclusion of the election, each candidate is assigned all ballots which express him as first preference. The candidate with the fewest ballots assigned to him is eliminated. Each ballot cast for the eliminated candidate is reassigned to the next expressed preference on the ballot.
B.14.3: Once the ballots are reassigned, the candidate with the fewest ballots assigned to him is eliminated and the ballots cast for him reassigned according to B.14.2. This process is repeated until one candidate wins by having a majority of non-abstention ballots assigned to him.
B.14.4: If, after any iteration, there are two or more candidates with the fewest ballots assigned to them, the candidate with the fewest first preferences assigned to him shall be eliminated. If these candidates all have the same number of first preferences assigned to them, the candidate with the fewest second preferences assigned to him shall be eliminated, and so forth.
B.14.5: If any ballot assigned to an eliminated candidate does not express a next preference, the ballot is treated in the same way as an abstention.
B.14.6: A candidate may not be assigned ballots after he has been eliminated. A ballot that would otherwise be reassigned to an eliminated candidate is instead assigned to the highest-ranked candidate that has not been eliminated, or treated as an abstention according to B.14.4.
