Fair majority voting

Fair majority voting is a biproportional apportionment method with single-member regions called "districts", so each district has exactly one representative. It can be thought of as the district cluster implementation of Party list. It proceeds the same as Party list except that each candidate is designated to a specific district so when a winner is selected that eliminates the other candidates in the district from all future rounds.

It was proposed in 2008 by Michel Balinski (who also invented the single-winner voting system called majority judgment) as a way to eliminate the power of gerrymandering, especially in the United States.[1]
