Participation Guidelines Amended
« on: December 16, 2002, 10:38:31 am »

The Board has voted to amend the Participation Guidelines to replace Cumulative Count as the state selection method with Simple Condorcet's Method.  Simple Condorcet allows voters to rank all the states, and the winner is the state that is unbeaten in all one-on-one contests with all the other states.  If there is no unbeaten candidate, smallest-magnitude victories are eliminated until a candidate is unbeaten.  For a description of Simple Condorcet's Method and discussion of why it is superior to other voting systems for our purposes, see the Voting Methods Report:

According to the Guidelines, you may withdraw your Statement of Intent if they are amended.  If you would like to do so, please email members@freestateproject.org.
