su'oremei jinga me la kandors�is.

This is an election method that could work for next year's LLG election, satisfying the properties that the members want the election to have: it elects only candidates that are approved by the majority, unless it has to choose more to fill the minimum number of slots; it allows voters to express that they prefer some candidates over others without voting against the others; it allows tie votes anywhere on the ballot. It is described first in Lojban, then in English.

Each voter casts a ballot giving their preferences among the candidates, plus a hypothetical candidate "Nobody". Voters are allowed to give equal ranks to candidates if they have no preference between them. If a voter considers a candidate unacceptable, he should rank him below Nobody; if a voter wishes to abstain with regard to a candidate, he should rank him equal with Nobody.

An unspecified rank is assumed to be tied with Nobody. If Nobody's rank is unspecified, it is below all ranked candidates.

The votes are counted by Condorcet's method, using Tideman's Ranked Pairs method to avoid cycles. This process goes as follows.

Each pair of candidates is considered individually. For two candidates, A and B, the margin of victory of A over B is defined to be the number of voters who rank A above B minus the number of voters who rank B above A.

The election result will be an ordering of all the candidates. The margins of victory are sorted from largest to smallest, and they are considered in that order to determine the ordering. For example, if B beats C with the largest margin of victory, then B will be ranked above C in the result. If a victory contradicts a part of the order that has already been established, it is ignored. For example, if B beats C, then C beats A by a smaller margin, then A beats B by a smaller margin, the result that A beats B is ignored because B is already ranked above A.

The result is now an ordering of all the candidates, including "Nobody". If there is a tie in a crucial place, it should be determined by a tie-breaking vote cast by a designated person.

If there are at least 6 candidates who rank above Nobody, then the top 6 are elected.

If there are between 3 and 6 candidates who rank above Nobody, then all of them are elected.

If there are fewer than 3 candidates who rank above Nobody, then the top 3 actual candidates are elected.
