First, an important note for everyone to remember:

A few Wikipedians have gotten together to make some suggestions about how we might organize data in articles about Voting systems. These are only suggestions, things to give us focus and to get us going, and you shouldn't feel obligated in the least to follow them. But if you don't know what to write or where to begin, following the below guidelines may be helpful. Mainly, we just want you to write articles!

This WikiProject's primary focuses:

  • Defining a standard format for editing pages on individual voting systems
  • Editing information about voting systems not specific to any one voting system, especially criteria for evaluating voting systems
  • Importing and editing the large amount of public domain information that exists on the internet on voting theory


There is a featured overview of voting systems at Voting system.

Ensure that every article has a category:

If an article can fit in one of the latter three categories, put it there. Otherwise, put it in Voting theory. Avoid putting an article in multiple categories; the latter three categories are subcategories of Voting theory.

Issues to consider

Voting systems is a domain that has been analyzed from sharply different and contrasting disciplines: game theory, sociology, political science, decision science, cognitive science and economics. Our articles should give a clear summary of the analysis from as many of these domains as we can get, without overly relying on jargon from any. Where there is jargon, explain it in another article, e.g. tolerances versus preferences. In those articles the different schemas and terms of art should be explained when necessary.
