Sounds fine. If she decides to do it by rank, it's not that difficult, I could point to a website which describes how to do it. (you just have to
make a chart and you can use one of two methods, it's not totally bad, but yeah I think approval should be fine, the numbers will just end up being
... well not too bad I guess lol)
Ranking could work for picking a leader at the same time based on the ranking and votes. We would probably want to use borda method. And if we use
borda, it's really easy to look at all the runners up in case the admin for some reason doesn't approve of the first 6 choices.
Borda method means that basically everyone gets a certain number of points based on their rank, and you add them up. Say that you rank 1-6 and 1 being
most favored, the winner is the one with the lowest total, and on and on until you have your first 6 choices.
Plurality requires basically seeing who was nominated first the most, second the most, third the most, etc. It takes more time than borda.
