Better voting

February 4th, 2008

Some suggestions on how to improve the voting system.

Some really nice ideas here. But it’s hard to imagine any of them ever being implemented – even preferential (or ‘instant runoff’) voting is hard enough to explain to punters.

Personally I think concerns about strategic voting are overplayed when you’re looking at most electorates in the real world – co-ordination is simply too hard.
