Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project focuses on the mathematical study of ranked voting systems, where voters rank their candidates in order of preference. There are many different voting systems used to determine a winner from a given set of ballots, for example Plurality, Borda Count, Coombs, Instant Runoff, and Anti-plurality. Looking further into a previous senior project where the author created a new voting system that selects an average alternative, we analyze the long term results of those systems. Taking the Win Big(k), and Lose Big(k) methods we compare them to various pre-existing ranked voting methods.
