I just received in my mail a link to the following web site:
It is a nicely designed comparison of Plurality and Condorcet voting methods using apparently trivial polls like choosing the where to go on vacation and what food to order.
Back on topic: I used to be a great fan of Condorcet but not anymore. Theoretically, Condorcet is a very fine voting method, but it has a major flaw: if it is ever used in a real elections it is almost certain that computers will be used to tally the votes. I very strongly prefer a simpler election method when pencil and paper are all that is needed to declare a winner. It is a question of transparency of the whole electoral process. You can vote here on your favorite election method.
So, I still favor approval voting or simple Range voting variants like Emocracy.
In any case, I am always happy to meet new people who want to promote fairer election methods. My most pressing question in those moments is: what can we do together to make our common dream a reality?
Thank you Brad for creating the page above.
What do we do next?
