Forder Lecture: Clueless voting

20 Jul 2023 6:30 AM - 7:30 AM
Presenter/Speaker: Professor Imre Leader
Location: S.1.04

Our starting point is the following obviously absurd question. Suppose that a large group are set to vote on a yes/no issue: each person will vote (in the usual way: in secret, at the same time) and then the `outcome’ is taken to be the majority decision. Each voter wants their vote to be right, but no voter has any idea at all about the issue. How should they vote?
