Why not IRV (Instant Run-off Vote) with remain, clean brexit, and May's plan. Seems simple enough for a referendum.

Caroline Thompson An Instant Run-off Vote (IRV). Vote for your first, and then second choices. That's it. Simple. My first choice would be remain. My second would be May's plan. Tally all the first choices. Something gets more than 50% that wins; otherwise the choice in last place gets eliminated. The people who picked the choice eliminated get their votes moved to their second choice. Now there's a winner. My guess is that remain and clean brexit would go on to the second round and most of the voters for May's plan would move to remain. The end.

GraWsA Three options gets so dicey though. Do you ask it in two questions? Or one with three options? But then how would the vote go? One vote or ranked voting? It's anything but simple
