Approval Voting without Faithfulness

Ninjbat, Uuganbaatar

Year: 2013   Volume: 7   Issue: 1   Pages: 15-20

Abstract: In this short paper, we analyze the implications of dropping the axiom of faithfulness in the axiomatization of approval voting, due to P.C. Fishburn. We show that a ballot aggregation function satisfies the remaining axioms (neutrality, consistency and cancellation) if and only if it is either a function that chooses the whole set of alternatives, or an approval voting, or a function that chooses the least approved alternatives.

JEL classification: D71, D72

Keywords: Approval voting, faithfulness, inverse approval voting
