Research and advice on methods of voting and election

The book Democracy with Sequential Choice and Fund Voting discusses the effect of implementing Sequential Choice or Fund Voting on integrity. Integrity requires that a concern be presented in accordance with what a person considers best, next best and so on, and that one expresses one's opinions by means of a vote which reflects these opinions; best, next best and so on down to the poorest, and in fact also to express via one?s vote (in fund voting) how intense one's feelings are regarding a matter or a variant of the matter.

This is discussed, among other places:

and elsewhere. Actually it runs like a connecting thread through the book that Sequential Choice or Fund Voting provide the opportunity to express priority and with fund voting to increase the differences in emphases, results that are very seldom available through traditional methods of casting a vote.
