Welcome to what will soon be the new home for Electowiki! The original is at wiki.electorama.com. The original home will be the best place to search for histories of pages prior to September 2018.

This wiki is closely associated with the Election-methods mailing list, but is more broadly for communities of election-minded people.

To learn more, visit Electowiki:About.

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, and Condorcet methods. 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.
