Abstract

Many procedures exist to determine the winner in an election, and many studies have been done to determine conditions under which each of them would work best. Much less attention has been given to the examination of how frequently these procedures tend to produce the same winner. The focus of the current study is to examine the likelihood that weighted scoring rules and weighted scoring elimination rules tend to always elect the same winner in three candidate elections.
