Election Simulator

Building off my Palatability Index calculator, it felt like the next step was to actually simulate elections with various methods. So this page attempts to do exactly that.

The assumptions of the electoral model here are as follows:

Five methods of election are used: plurality, plurality-with-elimination, pairwise comparison, Borda count, and palatability (because I wanted to see how that worked). Also, for each method, I want to calculate with and without a two-party primary.

The electorate is a continuous interval [-5,5], with the party split at 0.

There are currently 0 candidates.
