Repeated Ballot is the electoral system in which voters vote continuously with intervals for discussions and negotiation until a winner emerges. This system is used in electing a new Pope by a body of Catholic Cardinals. It is also used in the USA in nominating the American Presidential Candidates in Party’s Conventions and Primaries.

Merits of Repeated Ballot

(i) The Winner enjoys the support of the majority.

(ii) The best hands qualify as candidates.

(iii) It prevents deadlocks at the end of elections.

(iv) Candidates are voted based on their own merit, not on Party organization.

Demerits of Repeated Ballot

(i) It is expensive in terms of time and funds.

(ii) The system is exhaustive.

(iii) There will be a delay in releasing the election results due to series of voting involved before a winner emerges.

(iv) Some voters may develop apathy to politics due to repeated voting.
