Preferential Voting:(PV)is an electoral system where voters rank all the options on a single ballot according to preference. Voters may rank as few or as many as they wish. To receive majority support an electoral system must receive more than 50% of valid votes.

Excluded: An option is "excluded" from consideration, if it has the lowest amount of votes and another round of counting is required, if no other option reached more than 50% support to acheive the threshold.

Exhausted: A vote or ballot is "exhausted" following the voters choice being "excluded", if there were no further preferences ranked on the voters' ballot or if their next preferred option has already been excluded.

Threshold: The number of valid ballots divided by 2, rounded down to the lowest whole number plus 1.
