Title: Strategy-Proofness of Voting Procedures when Preference and Ballot Language Differ
Date: Friday 21 November 2008
Time: 16:30
Location: Room P.015A, Euclides Building, Plantage Muidergracht 24, Amsterdam


Much work in voting theory makes two assumptions: (1) the voters have preferences over candidates that are total orders, and (2) ballots have the same kind of structure as the preferences. In this talk I shall explore explore what happens when we drop these assumptions. Specifically, I shall discuss how the notion of strategy-proofness of a voting procedure is affected when the preference and the ballot language can differ, which may make it impossible for a sincere voter to vote by reproducing their true preference on the ballot sheet.

This is joint work with Maria Silvia Pini, Francesca Rossi and Brent Venable.
