The Village Election
Kowszun, Jorj
School Science Review, v99 n366 p96-101 Sep 2017
A vote with two candidates is simple -- the majority is clear. When there are more candidates, the vote is still clear if one receives more votes than all the others put together. Problems can occur if no candidate has that overall majority. Here are illustrated several voting methods that attempt to achieve fairness in a single election without the need to eliminate the candidate with the least support and hold another ballot. No method seems to be perfect.
