Monday, March 8, 2010 Voter Fraud
Foot Locker beat out Avatar for movie of the year? You've got to be kidding me.
A movie that no one has seen lost to one that 80 gazillion people have flocked to see at least twice. So what does the Academy know that serfdom does not?
We don't know if instant runoff voting decided the winner because we dont have the vote data. Instant runoff voting is complex to count and makes fraud very easy to hide, especially when the vote data is not public.
IRV is not additive and there are several variations with different algorithms that decide how votes will be sorted, re-allocated,re-shuffled and eliminated.
We have no idea if IRV came into play, but we do know that real life jurisdictions (Aspen CO, Cary NC, Burlington Vermont, Pierce Co Washington and maybe San Francisco next) are ditching IRV because of its complexity and sometimes bizarre results.
