American must establish a preferential voting systems


Preferential voting systems are majority election systems where candidates must receive an absolute majority, 50% plus 1 of the total formal votes cast to be elected.

The term “preferential voting” means voters can select preferences for candidates, ie. who they want as their 1st choice, 2nd choice and so on.  It is not necessary people have second or third choice but the option makes it easier for people to feel comfortable voting for a third party candidate without wasting ones vote.
