Usual judgment

The usual judgment is a single-winner electoral system invented by Adrien Fabre, a French social scientist, in 2019.[1] It is a highest median voting method, a system of cardinal voting in which the winner is decided by the median rather than the mean.

Just like the majority judgment, the usual judgment uses verbal appreciations − Bad, Inadequate, Passable, Fair, Good, Very Good, Excellent − rather than numerical to evaluates the candidates or options.[2]

However, the usual judgment uses a more reliable method to break ties between candidates.[1]
