[ARIN-consult] Consultation on Implementing Single Transferrable Voting for ARIN Elections

Throwing this thought out: what if everyone CAN vote (unlike what ARIN's doing with the 1.5-tier system right now, which I think is... not great), BUT an authorized user or contact must re-designate the voting contact every year?
Certainly doesn't eliminate all possibilities for fraud, but could reduce some of the ways people think this is being abused today?

Sure, but in such a case, isn’t it safe to presume that said organization would not make them the Designated Voting Contact in such a case?
