Single Transferable Vote. To our purposes, in our very simple election, 
this is a single-turn replacement for the mechanism I originally 
proposed (i.e., remove the least voted candidate at each round).

Seen from a voter's perspective this means: choose the subset of 
candidates that are acceptable to you, then rank them. If you only like 
one candidate, you obviously write his/her name only; if you like more 
than one, list the ones you like in order of preference, starting with 
the one you like most.
