Voting

Greetings, all. First time here, and I hope this will get some livelihood back into the community. Democracy is one of those things that you know isn't working if it's silent.

I wondered if anyone has done any research (besides me) into alternative voting methods. Do you think that our present method in the U.S. (and U.K. and Canada), plurality voting, is democratic enough? Should there be a different way, such as IRV, which activists are working to implement in San Francisco? Would people accept it?
