What about Ranked-ballots or Ranked-Choice voting?

Preferential ballots, by and large, all rank candidates on the ballot in some way. But the term “ranked-ballots,” or “Ranked-Choice” are typically associated with IRV initiatives rather than preferential ballots in general.

There is an undertaking afoot, for example, the “Ranked-Ballot Initiative” promoting IRV for Toronto municipal elections.

I emphasize, therefore, the distinction between the Condorcet/Ranked-Pairs method, which uses a preferential, or “ranked,” ballot, and any other so-called Ranked-Ballot proposals.
