Work Step by Step
The choice of voting method can affect an election's outcome. This statement is true. Using one voting method, one candidate may be declared the winner. However, using a different voting method, it is quite possible that another candidate may be declared the winner. Thus, to avoid controversy, it is important that the voting method be determined before the election begins. Also note that if the choice of voting method did not affect an election's outcome, then there would be no need to design a variety of election methods.
