Craig Hubley describes the dilemma of the frustrated voter  and the ranking options on simple ballots and electoral reform:
- too-simple ballots force second choices and tradeoffs that the voter does not feel reflect their first choices or values
- more complex ballots may be combined or counted in unexpected ways
- the lack of trust and expressive power, and actual loss of power due to the counting system, causes voters not to vote
- lack of interest in reform follows as fewer people learn the basics of the system(s)
- political classes grow more alienated from the general public and pursue narrow aims such as gaming elecoral systems
- it becomes more difficult to prevent false majority and other bad outcomes due to this disinterest, ignorance and poor reflexivity
The essay includes examples of the B5AV and B10AV allocation vote ballots. It does not include BSTV+C+L because that system has two rounds and the seat system can be fairly complex.
