Is first-past-the-post (plurality voting) neither an ordinal nor a cardinal method?
Cardinal methods (based on cardinal utility) and ordinal methods (based on ordinal preferences, also called ranked voting) are two main categories of modern voting systems, along with plurality voting.
It also says:
Approval Voting [which is a cardinal method] can also be compared to plurality voting, without the rule that discards ballots that vote for more than one candidate.
But strictly speaking, in the non-trivial case of more than two candidates, is first-past-the-post neither ordinal nor cardinal?
