Talk:Minimal Defense criterion

From Electowiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The article erroneously claims compliance with Minimal Defense requires voting methods to permit voters to truncate their rankings. There is an alternative: permit voters to express indifference (at least at the bottom of their ranking). In other words, a voter may rank multiple candidates as equal to each other. For example, B > A=C. (Note: I'm not advocating that indifference be permitted ONLY at the bottom. I don't yet have an opinion either way.) SEppley 15:48, 22 November 2012 (PST)
