Perpetual Voting: The Axiomatic Lens [article]

Martin Lackner, Jan Maly
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Perpetual voting was recently introduced as a framework for long-term collective decision making.  ...  For two simple but natural classes, we fully characterize the axiomatic possibilities. Second, we ask how proportionality can be formalized in perpetual voting.  ...  Let us briefly discuss two stronger axioms from the approval-based multi-winner literature: Proportional Justified Representation [24] and Extended Justified Representation (EJR) [1] .  ...

Susan Easton
2009 Probation Journal  
This article considers the issue of the prisoner's right to vote in the light of recent developments in law and policy.  ...  It critically reviews the purported justifications for disenfranchisement and argues that re-enfranchisement should be pursued on the grounds of both principle and policy.  ...  Although the Forfeiture Act 1870 removed most of these sanctions, offender disenfranchisement was retained and perpetuated in the UK by subsequent Representation of the People Acts.  ...

Theorising representation in the Māori seats: The crucial role of accountability

Sylvia Nissen, Lindsey Te Ata o Tu MacDonald

Compulsory voting and right-wing populism: mobilisation, representation and socioeconomic inequalities

Anthoula Malkopoulou
2020 Australian Journal of Political Science  
When all citizens vote, the influence of radical parties decreases. Despite this being a central justification for compulsory voting in the past, it has been absent from contemporary debates.  ...  And third, it reverses socioeconomic inequalities that drive support for populism through the egalitarian effects that compulsory voting has on policymaking.  ...  First of all, obliging everybody to vote diminishes the vicious cycle of abstentionism that perpetuates feelings of disempowerment.  ...
