Only on those occasions when voters are choosing one outcome.
In decision-making, it is always possible, at least in theory, to find a compromise. In elections, however, you can’t composite a human being! It is therefore always better to elect more than one person; (e.g., instead of having one election for the chairperson and other elections for office holders, the wiser course of action is to hold just one election for all the office holders).If, however, the election is for just one person, or for just one team of people, then a preferendum may be used… as long as there are at least three candidates, of course.
