Description

Mock-election demonstrating the pairwise comparison method of decision making, whereby each candidate is compared to another and the candidate who wins the highest number of the pairwise comparisons is the winner. While the pairwise method is rarely, if ever, used in elections, it is used in many other decision making situations. This activity is especially useful when used in conjunction with other electoral simulations.
