Condorcet and equal approval
The Condorcet system I am familiar with allow for ties between choices of preference.
For example, three choices A, B and C.
a valid ballot can be cast for A = B, which puts both of them 1 vote ahead of C.
that's the opposite of a single preference showing a vote for C, which puts C 1 vote ahead of both A and B.
These are both valid opinions and both should be permitted.
Here's a very old web page that allows Condorcet voting using ties:
I don't see any mention of this significant advantage of Condorcet in the elections methods education page.
Has this method been abandoned? For me, this is the way to allow voters to cast an exactly honest opinion.
