Re: [ga] [resend] STV voting method


I was explained that when external considerations like geographical
diversity (which is essential in ICANN process) are added to the
STV algorithm itself, the method became distorted.

Another point is, that every mathematical method had border
I believe the electorate size shall have some minimum to be
considered for STV, otherwise it is meaningless.
There should be at least two parameters to be taken into
account simultaneously:
        some ratio between Number-of-people-to-be-elected
        to Electorate-size *and* Electorate-size
to have some mathematical significancy.

Last not the least, the understanding of voting procedure
by everybody is essential -- and this is not a case for STV.
