'''Bucklin''' is a [[voting system]] that can be used for single-member districts and also multi-member districts. It is also known as the Grand Junction system after Grand Junction, Colorado, where it was first proposed. It is closely related to the class of [[graded Bucklin systems]], in which equal and/or skipped rankings are allowed, which includes such systems as [[Majority Choice Approval]] (MCA). Modern theorists tend to prefer graded Bucklin systems over ungraded ones, as they usually comply better with criteria such as [[FBC]].
