Preferential voting or preference voting may refer to different election systems or groups of election systems. European literature mainly uses the term for open list proportional representation, Australian literature for Single Transferable Vote or for Ranked voting, and American literature for any of them. Recently, an increasing number of authors, including David Farrell, Ian McAllister and Jurij Toplak, see preferentiality as one of the characteristics by which electoral systems can be evaluated. [1][2] According to this view, all electoral methods are preferentual, but to different degrees and may even be classified according to their preferentiality.[2] Preferential voting, when understood as one of the systems or a group of systems, may refer, among other, to:
