Fedora Project currently implements a single voting method which is used for all elections and public polling.

1.1. Concepts of Range Voting

Range voting works on the principal of allowing voters to rate as many or as few candidates as they want on a sliding scale.
This method is designed to give voters the option of splitting their vote and showing their level of preference of a subset of candidates over another.
Once voting ends, votes are tallied using the summing method (addition of all votes) to generate a final score for a candidate.
An example of range voting is available in the next section, Section 1.2, “Range Voting Example”
