exhaustive preferential voting

a system of allocating preferences within a preferential voting system, used for electing members in a multi-member electorate; the first candidate is elected by the usual means of allocating preferences; the next candidate is selected by returning the votes to their first preference, but then excluding the candidate already elected and transferring his or her preferences to the candidate next in order of voters' choice, and so on.
