Group Description

RANGE VOTING selects the winner of an N-candidate election:

(a) Each vote consists of assigning a point value from 0 to 99 to each candidate (for example, 30 points for candidate A, 64 for B etc.)
The voter might give her favorite candidate a 99 and her least-favorite zero.

(b) If a voter desires to express no opinion about any particular candidate, she may assign an X instead of a point value, indicating
"intentional blank."

(c) A candidate's "total score" is the average of all his
non-blank scores (average = sum of points voters cast
for that candidate divided by the number of voters
who did not vote an X for him).

(d) Candidate with highest average wins.

(e) Candidates with too few non-X votes (even though they might have high scores) are not permitted to win.



Range voting has properties superior to other single-winner voting systems:


1) Simplicity;

2) Encourages voter honesty instead of strategy;

3) Can be done on plurality-type
"dumb" voting machines;

4) Unaffected by
candidate cloning;

5) Best by test in computer simulation experiments measuring
Bayesian regret
of different voting systems;

6) Reduces spoiled ballots and 2-party domination.
