Comment Re:Rating voting is far from perfect (Score 1) 614

Actually, Arrow still applies to rated voting systems. Any rating induces a linear ordering on the candidates and Arrow can be applied. So, rated voting systems cannot be perfect using the same criteria as voting systems based on ordering of candidates. I would suspect that are other criteria that are better suited for rated systems. In particular, it would be nice to replace IIRC (independence of irrelevant alternatives) with a property better suited to rated voting systems.

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
