Cardinal voting systems, aka evaluative, rated, graded, or absolute systems, are ones in which the voter can evaluate each candidate independently on the same scale. Unlike ranked systems, a voter can give two candidates the same rating or not use some ratings at all if they desire, and skipped ratings can affect the result. Examples include Score voting, approval voting, and majority approval voting.
