If, for example, you wish to use a scale from 0 to some value, and unscored candidates are assumed to be given the lowest score, then voters need only be allowed to score from 1 to the chosen value; this is because unscored candidates will automatically be given a 0 (if it's set up that way).
 
=== Choose-one ballot ===
A '''single-mark ballot''' or '''plurality ballot''' is a type of ballot in which voters can only make a single mark next to one candidate. It is most commonly-used for [[First Past the Post electoral system|first-past-the-post]] elections, but also for [[Runoff voting]], [[Asset voting]], [[Random ballot]], etc. See [[:Category:Single-mark ballot voting methods|Category:Single-mark ballot voting methods]]. Most of these methods can also be modified to work with a [[Cumulative voting|cumulative voting]] ballot.
 
=== Approval ballot ===
Two rated ballots that use different scales can be converted to each other. For example, if one voter gave a candidate a 5 out of 10 and another voter gave a candidate a 3 out of 7, the 5 out of 10 can be interpreted as a 3.5 out of 7, and the 3 out of 7 as a 4.2857 out of 10. In general, all rated ballots can be thought of as approximations of (and transformable into) a scale from 0 to 1 (or 0% to 100%), with 0 being no support and 1 being full support.
