Range Voting

If there's anyone who hasn't been convinced by the past-odd years worth of elections that maybe, just maybe, our system of electing presidents is sub-optimal, raise your hands. For anyone else, there's an interesting article in Salon.com here:
http://www.salon.com/books/review/2008/02/12/gaming_vote/index.html

The end result of that, though, is that it says that what seems like the best form of voting available is the same one that the Olympics and Hot or Not use - Range Voting. Read the very, very, very thorough website on it here:
http://rangevoting.org/

I haven't read enough to be confident that it's correct, but the article and site are interesting regardless.
