Abstract/Artist's Statement

When scoring the same ballots from an election, different voting systems can yield different results. These voting systems can satisfy or violate voting properties. This project is based on Erin Stuckenbruck's senior project Lose Big, Win Big, Sum Big: An Exploration of Ranked Voting Systems. From her project, we obtained a resulting table of which of the voting systems she studied satisfies criteria such as Majority Loser, Condorcet Loser, and Monotonicity. This project examines whether the properties of voting systems that held true in the previous senior project, still holds true if we allow ties when voters rank their choices on a ballot.
