Article about an approval voting poll and whether approval voting should be used in mayoral elections in Taiwain’s capital city Taipei:
It was translated in google translate so the translation may be off…
Based on this, after all the embarrassment of this election process, in addition to reviewing the election work, it is perhaps necessary to rethink the necessity of the reform of the system. Looking at the foreign electoral system, the “Approval voting” that allows voters to sort all the options, or the “Borda count” that allows voters to score for the candidates, can be Participation options.
I’m glad to hear that approval voting is gaining some international support.
Also, I’m not sure if this is just a fluke but according to google trends approval voting is really popular in Latin American countries:
The reason I think that this is probably a fluke is because
- “Approval voting” translated into Español and then back into English is “voting approval”, which means something totally different.
- I tried changing by google search results settings by changing my country on the settings to many of those Latin American countries and I couldn’t find any article advocating opposing or even just talking about the potential use of approval voting in one of those countries. Searching for anything about approval voting in one of those countries was how I found that Taiwanese article I mentioned earlier.
