More than Two Choices

Open Up Resources 95 min(s)

Let's explore different ways to determine a winner. The five activities in this lesson deal with elections in which there are more than two choices. For example, if there are three choices, then the top vote getter might be approved by only 34% of the voters. Students explore several different rules for determining the winner: plurality, runoff, and instant runoff, and discover that the rules can give different results from the same set of voter preferences.
