Method 1:  The One-Vote Method

Every person is entitled to one vote.  However, he or she may use this one vote in one of two ways.  He or she may cast a vote in the affirmative, or he or she may cast a vote in the negative.  Casting a vote in the affirmative means that whichever candidate you voted for would recieve a vote in his or her favor (+1 vote).  Casting a vote in the negative would mean that whichever candidate you voted for would be deducted one vote in his or her favor (-1 vote).  The candidate with greatest number of net votes wins.   

Method 2: The Two-Vote Method
Every person is entitled to two votes.  He or she may use these votes in the affirmative or in the negative.  He or she may choose to cast two affirmative votes for (+2), one affirmative and one negative vote (+1 to one candidate, -1 to the other), or two negative votes (-2).  The voter may use the two votes on the same candidate, or may distribute his or her two votes amongst two candidates.  The candidate with the greatest number of net votes wins.

Please vote and give feedback.  If needed, seek clarification.

Both measures are ridiculous, because the winner would be the candidate who runs the lowest-profile campaign.

I'm in favor of a Two Vote, Multi-Candidate system.

A voter is given two votes, a yes vote and a no vote. With each vote, a voter can vote for and against as many candidates as it wished. Remember, the value of your vote goes down while voting for/against candidates, but it still represents 1 vote each Also, I'd like to propose two separate ballot lines: None Of The Above and All Of The Above.

So, if in 2000 you liked Gore and Nader but hated Bush, your vote would be:

YES: Gore and Nader
NO: Bush

If in 1992 you liked Bush and Perot but hated Clinton, your vote would be:

YES: Perot and Bush
NO: Clinton

I have my proposal. It would mean that the set of candidates with the most votes wins. Nothing to do with VPs. If say a set with only 1 candidate wins, that candidate wins all the EV at stake. If a set with 2 candidates wins, those candidates split the EV equally.

The following sets face each other:

Clinton vs. Bush vs. Perot vs. Clinton-Bush vs. Clinton-Perot vs. Bush-Clinton vs. Bush-Perot vs. Perot-Clinton vs. Perot-Bush.
