Abstract:

The study investigates the propensity of simple weighted scoring rules to yield a winning alternative which is the same as the alternative if any which would win using a norm rule such as the simple-majority rule or the Borda rule. The results, which apply only to situations where one of a number of alternatives is to be chosen on the basis of a single ballot, may be useful in designing balloting and scoring procedures for these types of situations.
