Oh, bother. Found it.

The "compromise" seems weighted to win because it's the easiest opt-in: You check a box to vote for 21 proposed projects.

The alternative, ranking up to 25 proposals in order of preference, seems far more time-consuming. In light of the "up to", I'd be curious to know if PB staffers afforded different weight to ballots where fewer projects were supported by residents (eg: If someone only voted for "Complete Cannon St. W", would it carry the weight of 25 #1 votes?). Encouraging signs of civic engagement, in any event.
