Subject:Occasionally-updated lecture on voting systems.
Mood: geeky

I recently posted this to the Silicon Valley Dean Democratic Club mailing list, because somebody asked me for a primer on election systems. I keep re-editing and expanding this text, to make it more comprehensive, and, I hope, clearer. I'm trying to create something that's accessible to election-system novices who have at least a basic grasp of arithmetic and logic. In particular, I hope to convert IRV supporters away from that quixotic pursuit, towards better ideas. After I posted it, another SVDDC member suggested it should go up on my blog, to have a permanent public home. It's a complicated topic, but worth understanding, so I hope you'll bear with me.
