Cardinal voting

Cardinal voting refers to any electoral system which allows the voter to give each candidate an independent evaluation, typically a rating or grade.[1] These are also referred to as "rated" (ratings ballot), "evaluative", "graded", or "absolute" voting systems.[2][3] Cardinal methods (based on cardinal utility) and ordinal methods (based on ordinal utility) are two main categories of modern voting systems, along with plurality voting.[4][5][6]

On a rated ballot, the voter may rate each choice independently.
An approval voting ballot does not require ranking or exclusivity.
