Approval Elimination Runoff (AER) or Approval AV is an IRV variant under which one eliminates the least-approved candidate until there is a majority favorite.

It is similar to DMC except that DMC finishes once there is a Condorcet winner, not a majority favorite. AER can potentially eliminate the Condorcet winner.

Approval is usually envisioned as being implied by ranking the candidate.
