Voting with Rubber Bands and Pulleys
October 4, 2004
Pizza and drinks will be served.
Believe it or not, many of the voting systems considered by leading theorists use rubber bands to compute the final winner.
How can this be so? What does this fact tell us about voting systems? How do dishonest voters use their rubber bands to stretch the truth? What happens if we replace rubber bands with strings, weights, and pulleys?
