Since multiple choice gives everyone the freedom to choose what they want the first time around and will create larger majorities for the book that wins, it eliminates the main reasons we decided to use run-offs every month.
Doing away with them would also make things simpler for everyone and easier for Tom, and I think would get people even more invested in the first poll since it'd often be final.
So I propose doing away with the run-offs unless there is a tie.
And we could still put our 2012 way of doing run-offs to good use for resolving any 2013 ties - A shorter single-choice run-off for the tied winners, and if that ends in a tie then Tom's vote decides it.

Or how about no run-off vote, and we have discussions on all the winners. I'm up for this.
So the poll question and answers to settle this should be what?
Since we will have multiple choice voting on the 2013 polls,
- Keep the run off vote the way it is now.
- Do away with the run off vote and let Tom cast the deciding vote in case of a tie.
- Do away with the run off vote except in case of a tie. If the 2nd vote ties, Tom can cast the deciding vote.
- Do away with the run off vote. In case of a tie, have discussions on all the winners.
Multiple voting on this poll?
