Is this equivalent to the Consistency criterion? - User:BetterVotingAdvocacy

According to the first line, it's stricter (if X wins in a plurality of the constituencies, then X must win in the combined constituency; you get consistency if you replace "plurality of" with "every"). But according to the second line, it's the same thing as Consistency. I think this page can be deleted; at least, I haven't heard anyone use the term on EM.

It appears in https://rangevoting.org/Criteria.html:
8. Partitionable: "Partition the voters into two subsets, such the Northern and Southern ones. Suppose that the same candidate X is elected by the North and by the South. Then X must be elected countrywide."
so I think redirecting it would be best. BetterVotingAdvocacy (talk) 21:47, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
