Abstract

In 1770 Borda proposed a method to build a ranking based on assigning points to the alternatives according to their positions in the individual rankings. The method is simple but has some flaws: it does not comply with the Majority criterion, the Condorcet criterion and the Independence of the Irrelevant Alternatives. A variant of Borda’s method is Range voting, but it presents the defect of being easily manipulable.
