Repeated balloting is when a voting method is used multiple times with the same voters. It can be done until a certain stopping condition is reached i.e. a majority are in agreement, and other constraints can be added, such as eliminating some candidates in between ballotings or weakening the stopping condition over time.

One variation of repeated balloting is to require a winner to win two consecutive rounds, rather than only one.
