Welcome to Electowiki! This is a wiki associated with the Election-methods mailing list, and communities of election-minded people.

Election Methods

There has been an increasing awareness in many parts of the world of the effect that different election methods (voting systems, voting methods, etc; this site uses these words interchangeably) have on the quality and timbre of elections and democracy. There are movements for proportional representation, instant-runoff voting, Condorcet. This site gives you a guide to what these things are.

But it also goes one step further: there is a vast literature on the theory behind these systems: what criteria can you use to judge whether a particular method works well? What strategies will different systems encourage voters to use? We record the collective wisdom of scholars and enthusiasts, and, by working together, hope to create a canonical reference for all to use.
