Lab 2
Voting Profiles

In this lab you will create a voting profile for four candidates, Alex, Bobby, Chris, and Dana. You may use as many voters as you like in your profile. The profile should have the following characteristics:

  1. Chris wins in a plurality vote
  2. Alex wins in an anti-plurality vote
  3. Dana wins using Borda Count
  4. Bobby wins in a simple run-off (second vote is between the top two from the plurality)
  5. (Extra credit) Either Alex or Dana wins in a remove-lowest repeated run-off. (Repeated plurality votes, removing the last candidate each time)

     Also indicate what happens in a vote-for-two election (1,1,0,0).

For every method, give the full ordering of candidates that results.
