These introduce Ranked Choice Voting and the free ebook.
The eBook is beautiful and concise.
The booklets for printing on A4 letter-size paper are pdf files without links.
The simplest is just a flat sheaf of A4 letter-size paper, to staple on one corner or edge. It has more complete references.
The hardback size lets you print a beautiful booklet on A4 letter-size paper. (For the saddle binding, like a magazine, you might use normal staples through the 18 sheet spine. The booklet is just thick enough to show the spine title along its cover.
The pocket size is more handy and cute but tricky to make. (It needs ways of cutting the b4 legal-size printout in half and saddle binding it — a long-reach stapler helps, but sissors and clips could do it.)
The old abridged black and white version is easy but ugly. You need just 7 sheets of A4 letter paper and a plain stapler. It prints well on black-ink printers and copiers. Other versions look better in color.
If you would like more numbers and logic with fewer pictures, Democracy Evolves is again free to browse or print. It prints in B&W on the front and back of four letter-size A4 sheets. It can be corner stapled with no cuts or folds. The first page has the introduction to the primer; the other seven add to it at a first-year college level.
Booklets and Slide ShowsThe booklet is a great introduction to voting methods or a review of concepts in the website. It is colorfully illustrated and available in your choice of formats.
