This is a good start but I think it makes sense to go a little more broad. In the example you gave the method selected multiple winners and needed a completion method to get down to a single winner. The inverse is also possible. Method of Equal Shares does not always return all the winners so it uses bloc score as the completion method to get up to the desired number. I am currently working with the author of MES to propose SSS as a more natural completion method. Please note that this term is actually used in the MES paper. --Dr. Edmonds (talk) 03:28, 4 May 2022 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you're even referring to by "the MES paper" (since the "Method of Equal Shares" article links to several papers). I'm going to leave my definition in place for now, and maybe spend some time looking up the sources some other evening. I might just send an email to the EM list about it. -- RobLa (talk) 04:22, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
