More About Preferential Voting

There's one thing in it that doesn't apply to WSFS elections (you're not required to number all the candidates; WSFS allows you to leave candidates blank), but this cartoon explains preferential voting very well and also says why you should vote your first preference for the candidate you really wish could win even if you don't think that candidate is likely to win.

Thanks to Ed Dravecky for pointing this out.
