In a Ranked poll, respondents see all your options at once and put them in preference order (#1, #2, #3, etc.). They then write one comment explaining their ranking.  

Ranked polls use instant runoff voting and require a majority to win. That’s a fancy way of saying that PickFu tabulates everybody’s rankings until one option has earned over half of the respondent’s votes.
