Voting matters - for the technical issues of STV
Issue 5, January 1996
In this issue, two long and one short article appear which I hope will be of
substantial interest to readers. In the first, Crispin Allard produces some
estimates of the likely rate of non-monotonicity, based upon a mock
election. Secondly, Hugh Warren gives an interesting example of the
Condorcet paradox which can only serve to show the inherent complexity of
preferential voting. Lastly, I report on a program which attempts to produce
plausible election data from STV result sheets.
