Voting Theory

I was enjoyed the Sunday newspaper (on Sunday!) and ran across this column about various voting systems and that made me curious enough to dig a little more, starting with this article. There is a definite distinction between the system (often based on a math proof) and the implementation of the actual voting. Makes sense I think.

It’s one of those things that I wish I had time to learn, it just looks…interesting. At the same time, there’s something to be said for the elegant simplicity of ‘most votes wins’.
