A new online platform seeks to measure voter preference by comparing candidates one-on-one.

“Ranked Choice Vote is igniting a national dialogue on a much more democratic system of voting and the feasibility of online voting for future U.S. elections,” according to Rank Choice Vote press release. “The platform utilizes the Condorcet-Minimax method in which voters rank candidates by most and least preferred, and the candidate who would win in a two-way race against each of the other candidates reflects the majority preference of the electorate.”

The campaign, led by social entrepreneur Greg Grinberg and a team of software engineers, seeks to increase voter turnout and make the case that online voting is secure and possible for future elections.
