There are four items in this issue:


This is the first issue of Voting matters that I have edited. I plan to continue the practice, with which the journal started, of reproducing old documents that are relevant to preferential voting systems. Documents emerging from relevant committees of the Electoral Reform Society will also be considered for publication. But I expect that the preponderance of the items published will, like all four items in this issue, be new contributions from persons conducting their own inquiries. I also plan to continue publishing occasional reviews. Issues will continue to appear when there is sufficient material, and not according to a schedule.
