ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

double direct election

Okay, so let's say you are in class and the teacher is going to pick someone to be the new classroom leader. Usually, the teacher would just choose someone herself, right? But in a double direct election, everyone gets to vote for who they want to be the leader.

But hold on, there's another step! Once everyone votes, the two people with the most votes get to face off in a second election. Then, everyone votes again for their favorite out of those two.

So, in summary, a double direct election is where everyone votes twice to choose a winner. First, everyone votes for who they want to be in the running. Then, the top two people from that first election get to have another vote to see who is the most popular.
