What is #BruinVote16?
#BruinVote16 is a student-led initiative designed to encourage fellow students to educate themselves on the issues and make their voices heard through their vote on November 8. This initiative is tied to #CollegeDebate16, a national, non-partisan initiative to empower young voters to identify issues and engage peers in the presidential election process.
Voting Schemes: Is Ranking a Good Alternative to "Vote for One"?
When there are more than two choices ("candidates") under consideration in a vote, various voting methods are commonly used to determine the winning choice. For example, listing top college sports teams and selecting a host site for the Olympics use voting methods that involve ranking candidates to determine the winner. Ideally, the voting method used for a given situation accurately measures the "will of the people." During this interactive session, we will explore several different voting methods and consider advantages and shortcomings of each. We will also briefly hear of some actual examples from recent years, including a vote about voting in Great Britain and U.S. Presidential elections since 1992.
