Looking at the proposed method of choosing a winner it occurs to me that there should perhaps be changes before the voting is finalised. I offer for consideration. Under the current system the winner will be whoever gets the most votes from 6 contestants. This will mean that the winner will receive most votes but will NOT have an overall majority. For instance say he gets 30% of the vote that would mean that 70% preferred someone else as Protector. Ideally, the final choice should be between 2, this means whoever gets most votes wins a majority overall. The current system can be manipulated by block voting, which by my observation is exactly what is happening. If the method is changed so that the candidates are slowly eliminated who can tell where an eliminated candidates votes would go. What it could mean is that the voting picture might change dramatically each time. I personally think that if the final choice is made with an overall majority this would be a more satifactory result than that which we may be getting now. I offer this for the judgement of others.
